The AWARE – Coral Reef Conservation Specialty Course philosophy is to inform divers and nondivers about the plight of the world’s coral reefs. The course describes how coral reefs function and why they are so important. It also reviews why many reefs are in serious trouble and what individuals can do to prevent further decline.
Most divers, snorkelers and environmental enthusiasts have already visited or
plan to visit a coral reef. The AWARE – Coral Reef Conservation Specialty course
provides the knowledge base for proper interaction while touring a reef.
