This amazing Learn to Dive program allows budding marine conservation volunteers to learn the skill through a well-renowned dive operator while also participating in a credible reef monitoring program. With a high commitment to environmental protection and sustainability, this unique dive program falls under the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority’s monitoring program ‘Eye on the Reef’ and is designed for volunteers interested in scuba diving, marine conservation and spending time on the reef. From learning to dive (or brushing up on their skills) to spending time with reef experts and monitoring the reef for the Marine Park’s conservation program, volunteers will find this to be an amazing learning, scuba diving and conservation experience. Volunteers with a passion for marine conservation and the willingness to learn to dive, this program promises to deliver a life changing experience.
Goals of this Project:
- Protect Australia’s amazing Great Barrier Reef
- Provide information to researchers and conservation authorities to help preserve marine life
- Raise awareness of the conservation issues of the Reef and teach people how to love, respect and preserve the marine environment
- Enable inter-cultural exchange between all parties and teach international visitors more about marine conservation and Australia
Note: This program offers a 2 week 'Learn to Dive' option for those wishing to be certified and a 1 week 'Certified Diver' option for those already qualified.
