Providenciales, 16 Oct 2014 – A $9,000 grant from the Governor’s Office has worked to get 23 islanders better educated about coral reefs.

A workshop wrapped up recently, and the group is now certified ‘Reef Check EcoDivers’. Katharine Hart, DEMA Environmental Officer shared that nine dive companies between Grand Turk and Provo participated and now add to the human resources of DEMA; these divers from Blue Water Divers, Oasis Divers and Grand Turk Diving Co. on Grand Turk, and Provo Turtle Divers, Beaches, SURFside Ocean Academy, Big Blue Unlimited and Crystal Seas Adventures in Providenciales will now work to help in protecting the coral reefs of the TCI.

The two workshops were held end of September and brought in a specialist from the Reef Check Foundation, an international coral reef monitoring organisation.
