Diving volunteers - Earthwatch Australia

Join the Recovery of the Reef team together with the Australian Institute of Marine Science to assess the growing prevalence of coral disease on this landmark site. Working across a variety of dive sites you will conduct underwater surveys tagging and photographing diseased areas, which will then be monitored over time to assess the condition of the coral. In the aquarium you will set up and conduct experiments that measure light, temperature, pH and nutrients of the water.

Location: Orpheus Island, Great Barrier Reef, Qld.
When: 2 – 19 March, or 30 August, 2012.
