Following the dive certification training for Larapan and Mantanani youths, they are now trained and certified as EcoDiver. EcoDiver is diver volunteers who help Reef Check to collect data necessary to assess the health of coral reefs for coral reef management and conservation. The survey data is used to identify threats and solutions to protect the reefs. A certified EcoDiver can participate in any Reef Check surveys within the region he or she is certified in.
Simultaneously, in other places, we have trained and certified 3 EcoDiver trainers. These 3 trainers used to be our EcoDiver volunteers, helping us with Reef Check surveys around Malaysia. With the trainer certification, they are now able to train EcoDiver and spread reef awareness to their divers.
