Join certified restoration practitioner and biologist Andrew Taylor on an ongoing coral restoration project in Nusa Penida Marine Park. During this week you will learn about techniques and up-to-date science on coral reef restoration, as well as take part in the project.

This week long course is conducted as a workshop. Each student receives a Research Coral Restoration Handbook.

Day 1:  We start in the classroom with learning about restoration ecology and types of coral restoration projects. The first diving day is then spent surveying impact sites and viewing a selection of coral restoration projects taking place on the island. 

Day 2:  We discuss and developing a restoration plan. Followed by a site assessment of the restoration area including mapping and identification of species present.

Day 3:  We begin building modular reef structures on shore. Then out diving to select suitable donor sites for collecting coral transplants

Day 4: Building the coral nursery and installing reef structures underwater

Day 5: Transplanting corals into the coral restoration site

Day 6: Developing a monitoring plan in the classroom. Then out diving to measure all the new coral transplants and secure any loose fragments. Inspect and monitor some of the older areas of the restoration site and look for growth.

This was the experience of a lifetime! I always felt safe and so well taken care of. BBT and Egypt Unlimited tours created a family away from home while learning so much! Even being a high school science teacher with a bunch of elementary teachers in a land of vast history I have so many ideas to take back to the classroom, and friends all over the country! Can’t wait to do another trip with BBT! P.S. Some of the Egypt side trips (Nubian Village, Abu Simbel Temples, and hot air ballon) were 100% worth the extra money and some of my favorite moments on the trip!

This trip was a once-in-a-lifetime experience! It was unforgettable! Everything was well planned, thorough, and organized. I was impressed with how smoothly everything went. If there were challenges, we as travelers did not know about them. The experiences in Egypt were everything you wish for and more. The amount of knowledge and history that was shared was above and beyond. If you are thinking about this trip, don't second guess it!! Sign up right now! It is a trip you will never forget.

This trip was a life changing experience for me! From the moment I arrived to Egypt, the group on the trip immediately connected and during our time together, we were able to create deep connections and friendships. This trip was full of so many adventures in our short amount time, we got to see so much! BBT and our tour guides from Egypt Unlimited Tours were so passionate, caring, and knowledgeable. They did a wonderful job making sure we all had a great experience. I highly recommend this trip for the history, culture, and beauty that can be found in Egypt!

This trip was an incredible experience! Traveling this summer, with COVID-19 still around, had me a little hesitant, but this company did an AMZING job at answering my questions and helping me feel comfortable with travel during this time. I would not trade this experience for anything in the world. We were taken care of and appreciated as guests. I learned an incredible amount of history from our guides. The organizer of our trip, BBT Travel, did an amazing job of curating an itinerary that was full of site seeing, learning, fun, and relaxation time. I will definitely travel with this company again in the future!

This trip changed my life. I learned and experienced so many amazing things that I would never have been able to without BBT. I feel so lucky to have met so many amazing people and truly feel like I have a new family. I plan on travelling with BBT many more times in the future.
