Training the NEXT generation of marine conservationists
Coral reefs are among the planet’s oldest, most productive, and most diverse ecosystems. But, they are also one of the most threatened. Reefs around the globe are declining at an alarming rate, and although the problems have been well documented for over 50 years, not enough has been done to protect and conserve our planet’s oceans.
Our aim is to not rely solely on governments to solve these problems, but to increase the capacity and skillsets of local managers and divers around the globe to empower a new generation of action oriented conservationists. Through training courses we are giving people from many different backgrounds the knowledge to initiate action, and through our networks helping those who want to make a difference join up and realize their goals.
What we do
A network of conservation centers offers assistance in finding internships, jobs, or other educational opportunities.
