About this trip

Coral Restoration week


  • PADI Coral Restoration Specialty


  • Coral Restoration Handbook
  • 10 dives
  • Installation of one coral frame per student

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.
