AWARE Coral Conservation Specialty

The Coral Reef Conservation Specialty course informs divers and non-divers about the plight of the world’s coral reefs.



The course describes how coral reefs function and why they are so important. It also reviews why many reefs are in serious trouble and what individuals can do to prevent further decline. Most divers, snorkelers and environmental enthusiasts have already visited or plan to visit a coral reef. The Coral Reef Conservation Specialty course provides the knowledge base for proper interaction while touring a reef.

How It Works

It works in conjunction with PADI AWARE’s popular AWARE – Our World, Our Water manual which is a valuable resource for anyone interested in understanding and preserving aquatic environments as well as learning more about ocean environments, ecosystems and threats.

There are no prerequisites or age restrictions and NO water sessions are required to earn this non-diving certification.
