Our primary mission is to educate the community and visitors to minimise the effects of tourism, in particular water based activities such as scuba diving and snorkelling, on the fragile reef and environment. Our second objective is to monitor and document the abundance, health and variety of life on specific sites to enable effective analysis of the potential damage being caused by human interface. The first role of the volunteers is to actively conduct clean-up operations on the beaches and in the water, involving the local communities – primarily local schools. For the more experienced divers then citizen marine biology research is undertaken, monitoring and recording data from set positions on the reef. The data is uploaded to a cloud server which is available for university studies at facilities such as Glasgow University in Scotland.
