This short coral gardening workshop is an introductory level training program that teaches the participants basic techniques of Coral Propagation. This workshop helps point out the important procedures that lessen stress in the coral reefs.
The processes introduced in this workshop are similar to those when human discover planting ten thousand year ago; but this time it is corals. By simplifying the information and teaching the crucial processes of coral propagation is similar to teaching gardening. Instead of teaching a person to become a marine biologist that could consume great amount of time, energy and resources; we teach people the gardening process which is quicker and more effective in addressing the current rate of destruction of the coral reefs.
This workshop is conducted in Panorama Diver, Long Beach Perhentian Island through our partnership with Ocean Quest – Sea Shepherd Dive.
