We are supporting Coral Watch by sharing information about the health of the corals we sight during our surveys. CoralWatch is a global database designed by The University of Queensland. It allows scientists across the globe to contribute data that will help to increase our understanding of coral reefs and the impact of climate change and bleaching.
Did you know that anyone can get involved with this amazing initiative by simply downloading the CoralWatch application on their smartphone or device? You do not need to be a coral expert to provide data!
In 2002 CoralWatch designed the Coral Health Chart which standardizes color changes in coral providing an easy way for people to compare the color of the coral they see with those on the chart and share their findings via the CoralWatch app.
