Earthwatch Institute expedition to the Great Barrier Reef

-

Global not-for-profit environmental charity Earthwatch aims to bring individuals from all walks of life together with world-class scientists to work for the good of the planet. Their latest scientific expedition is heading to the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.

The leading scientist of this expedition is Dr David Bourne from the Australian Institute of Marine Science. The trip will involve learning research skills and helping at the research station on the beautiful and remote Orpheus Island off the coast of Queensland, an area untouched by the recent Cyclone Debbie. Divers will be diving twice a day and photographing and monitoring corals, helping Earthwatch scientists research the mysteries behind coral disease and the current state of the Great Barrier Reef. The expedition is a seven-day duration commencing 4 May. The cost is AU$1,595 and covers all accommodation, meals, transport in the field and insurance. And there are only three spots left!

This is a wonderful opportunity for the avid scuba diver to not only dive the Great Barrier Reef, but help contribute to some extremely valuable research. To take part, all divers must have a minimum of Open Water Diver certification, and have completed and passed a commercial dive medical assessment performed by a SPUMS doctor prior to the beginning of the project.
