Learn How The Reef Works Together

Advanced Reef Teach Course

The Advanced Reef Teach course offers a full day program focusing on fewer topics than the Evening Reef Teach Talk, but covering them in greater detail.

Learn about the diversity of the reef, including some of the reefs best kept secrets, fascinating interactions between organisms and how science and management programs are making sure they are going to be here for many years to come.

The Advanced Reef Teach program has been designed to satisfy the most inquisitive and enquiring minds looking for more than just an overview of the reef, it's inhabitants, the threats it faces in the future and what can be done to assist in it's recovery and subsequent management.

You won't find the topics discussed, answers you get or this level of information in any text book or documentary, Reef Teach presents up to date, real life information and subjects actually experienced by marine biologists that are actively working on the reef today.
