One of the first and the largest community projects on Koh Tao, where a total 7 dive school who were part of the Save Koh Tao initiative, created artificial reef structures that they then deployed together in March 2009. Its success then led to more structures being deployed in 2011. Located close to one of the island's most popular dive sites, it offers relief to the surrounding corals, as well as a new habit for existing marine life in that area.
With each structure designed to encourage coral growth and marine diversity. The structures also have additional benefits to help with diver training and buoyancy practice. With swim-throughs, balance beams, hover weights, and other obstacles that divers can use for practice to perfect their buoyancy control and their trim.
If you're interested in helping maintain and monitor artificial reefs, then please contact us and inquire about joining one of our internships.
