Citizen science is a great way to gather and provide scientists with good quality data for research.
You don’t need a degree to take part. All that is needed is a short presentation to understand the methodology of each project before you can head out diving and start collecting valuable data.
These projects around the world rely on divers like you to help forward their research.
Our 4 day Citizen Science Overview will go through a range of marine conservation based citizen science projects to give you knowledge and experience in some of the research projects around the world.
From plastic research to coral restoration, we will cover a wide range of topics to give you a broad view at the world of citizen science.
You will be able to take these projects home and continue to provide data to these projects.

Before beginning the Citizen Science Overview, we need you to be a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver with a Peak Performance Specialty certification.
Why? With marine conservation and citizen science, we are conducting most of our scuba diving in very close proximity to the coral reefs. We need our students and interns to have a high level of buoyancy control as we do not want to cause any damaging impact to the coral reef.
If you do not have these certifications, you can take these short courses before you start your program and boost your underwater skills.
