Are you itching to get back into the scuba lifestyle during this time of social distancing and sheltering in place? If so, you’ve got a chance to brush up on your scuba knowledge and get one step closer to that Master Scuba Diver Rating, all from the comfort of your home.
The Project AWARE Coral Reef Conservation course has been updated for 2020 and my presentation has been optimized for Zoom! And for a limited time Dive With Frank will be offering this course online via Zoom. In the last 2 years DWF has been fortunate enough to be able to experience both Caribbean and Indo-Pacific reefs, and he’ll be sharing photo and video of both of these amazing parts of the world.
Who should take this course?
Everyone likes to scuba dive or snorkel in warm, clear water on a vibrant coral reef, yet many people know little about what they’re seeing or the importance of reef ecosystems. The AWARE – Coral Reef Conservation Specialty course helps you appreciate the complexity of these habitats and teaches you how you can help conserve these vital systems.
Anyone who has an interest in the aquatic world can take this course. There are no prerequisites or age restrictions and no water sessions are required to earn this non-diving certification.
What will you learn?
Through classroom discussions, you learn:
- How coral reefs function and the complex nature of life on a reef.
- Why coral reefs are so important.
- Why many coral reefs are in serious trouble.
- What you can do to prevent further decline.
- How Project AWARE unites divers and water enthusiasts to make a difference.
How long will it take?
- We will complete our online classroom study (using ZOOM) during a roughly 2 hours classroom session.
NOTE: Multiple sessions are listed in this event, each of which represents a separate opportunity to take this class, but classroom is only a single (1) session.
