International Year of the Reef (IYOR)
Reef Watch Training at Marine

Reef Watch Training at Marine and Coastal Resources Management Office, Phuket, Southern Thailand

To celebrate the IYOR 2018, on 26th March 2018, the Department of Marine and Coastal Resources (DMCR) organized Reef Watch training at the Marine and Coastal Resources Management Office, Phuket. About 25 volunteer divers joined the event. These volunteer divers gained significant experience of the DMCR’s reef restoration methodology. Learning how to conduct Reef Watch will  increase their capacity for working on coral reefs. After field practice at Maiton Island, the Reef Watch data was submitted online (see results at http://www.greenfins-thailand.org/module.php?name=reefwatch&pg=result).
