Coral Reef Conservation “Coral For Life”

Our Coral Reef Conservation Program “Coral For Life” is a conservation awareness project aimed to educate and inspire the younger generation to understand the benefit of preserving coral.

Knowledge is needed to address these environmental issues. The program provides a unique education for participants to witness the natural beauty found in our underwater world. It also describes the vital role coral reefs play for life on earth and how to preserve it.

Coral reefs are key to marine biodiversity. They are one of the most important ecosystem that helps to maintain various other organisms.

During the program, participants learn about the role coral plays within the environment and to see coral in their natural environment while snorkelling or scuba diving.

Social and Developmental Issues

Downbelow Marine & Wildlife Adventures is 100% committed to marine conservation and always strive to take action to protect the ocean. And for the Coral Reef Conservation program, its mission involves several important social and development issues. The programs addresses and positively affect the extinction of coral reefs, sustainability of the marine ecosystem, education on the importance of coral, and lastly tourism and recreation.

Globally, coral reefs are facing an extinction crises at a very fast rate. The program not only educates the participants on the importance of preserving and restoring the coral reefs. With every awareness program conducted, a number of corals are planted and will hopefully revers the rapid decline of coral reefs.

The number of flora and fauna that depend upon the existence of coral reefs also deteriorate at the same rate. Preserving coral will have a very positive impact of the organisms that lives within the reef. The program contributes to the sustainability of the marine ecosystem and its purpose is to ensure that coral reefs thrive in our marine environment.

With knowledge gained from this 3 day program, participants can help to spread awareness towards more people and inspire a continuous passion to preserve all coral reefs in their local environment and places they visit.

Because of its beauty, coral reefs carry enormous potential for tourism and recreation. Our Coral Reef Conservation Program will consistently and continuously promote the restoration and preservation of coral reefs so that future generations can also benefit and enjoy the charm of the coral reefs.

Beach Clean Up

Our last assignment for this program is a beach clean up. Sadly ocean trash is an increasing problem worldwide and if, like us you are blessed to be based on a beach, you will see the plastic tide daily. More than eight million tonnes of plastic is thrown away each year and washed out to sea. An afternoon beach clean up is a good way to finish this program to see what impact trash has on our environment and what we can do to help keep our planet and oceans clean.
