Reef Check Italia onlus and Coral Eye periodically organise a field course on hard corals identification and coral reefs monitoring approaches opened to marine biology students and volunteer scuba divers. The course aims to:
• provide the basic knowledge for the identification of exacorals and their diseases
• present an overview on the well-established coral reefs monitoring approaches, including Reef Check and Coral Watch
• apply different methods underwater
• advance in the monitoring action of the coral reefs at the Bangka outpost
Lectures and seminars will be alternated with day and night dives, as well as practical sessions in the lab. At the end of the course it is expected that the participants show what they have learned and results achieved.
