Coral reefs on Koh Tao needs your protection!

13/08/2018

There are a few steps that you can take to save coral reefs on Koh Tao, so other people could enjoy their diving on Koh Tao and Samui. Remember, diving in Thailand allows you to enjoy underwater aquatic life.

So:
— Do not purchase souvenirs made from coral or any threatened or endangered marine species in Koh Tao shops.
— Reduce, reuse, and recycle your trash.
There are many trash beens in Koh Tao and Samui specifically for recycle products.
— Turn off lights when you’re not using them. Use less electricity and reduce greenhouse gases.
— As a diver or snorkeler, choose divecenters that use mooring buoys or drift diving techniques whenever possible rather than anchors that can cause reef damage.
— As a diver, practice buoyancy control skills in a pool or sandy area before diving near a coral reef on the dive sites around Koh Tao. To improve your buoyancy, join PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy Specialty course in our Scuba Birds diving center in Koh Tao or Samui. Make sure your gauges and equipment are secured to avoid accidental contact with the reef, and never touch, stand on or collect coral.
— Support the establishment of coral reef protected areas and encourage better protection and management for those that exist.
— Enroll in an AWARE Specialty diving course like AWARE Coral Reef Conservation with our experienced instructors to increase your knowledge about coral reefs and other aquatic environments.

Keep us save living coral reefs on Koh Tao for our children, help us to protect it!
