CoralWatch workshop_registration and info_Heron__7-10May2021
CoralWatch is offering a four-day practical professional development on Heron Island, focusing on coral biology, reef health and threats, coral bleaching, citizen science and the importance of reef conservation. Learn how to collect and interpret CoralWatch data and identify trends using the CoralWatch global database, investigate zooxanthellae and identify coral genus. Apart from lectures and in-class curriculum linked activities, we will explore and learn about the reef during snorkel trips and low-tide reefwalks.

This workshop is suitable for anyone with an interest in the marine environment and citizen science, and will be particularly relevant to both senior and junior high school science, aquatic practices, biology and STEM teachers. (20 PD Points).
