04 May Future Ocean Defenders: Mission Continues!

May is a month worth celebrating, especially as CTC was able to collaborate once more with dive operator Joe’s Gone Diving in an educational outreach event with Green School students on coral reef biology and restoration. This time, we have the luxury of sharing our knowledge with eight excellent junior Advanced Open Water divers from Green School with inquisitive minds. On May 4, 2022, we had a fun classroom session of theories and a dry run of coral fragments tying onto a Reef Star, the structure used in the MARRS method.

The following week, the whole group went to Tulamben and dived at the shallow reef to observe the reef and added two Reef Stars at a previous restoration site. This activity was followed by the children’s first shipwreck dive! The beauty of the surrounding reefs pulled us all in and never ceases to amaze us. And as usual, we love spending time with these high-spirited children!

With this second session of outreach activity, we hope to grow awareness and a sense of belonging to the ocean for these young ocean defenders. We look forward to having a continuation of such opportunities in the future, reaching far and wide and spreading love for the ocean that connects us all.
