Appeal for help from Phuket’s divers

PHUKET: The Department of Marine and Coastal Resources is appealing to Phuket’s dive industry for volunteers to take part in its ‘Reef Watch’ surveying program.

The program aims to assess the health of Thailand’s coral reefs.

The collected data will be used as part of World Ocean Day 2010, and all findings will be available to the public.

The research project has received a massive cash injection from the Petroleum Authority of Thailand (PTT), which has donated 1.6 million baht for the project.

The project is set to commence soon and will be ongoing for the next 8 to 12 months, but is in need of Phuket-based operators to help with research.

Greenfins are one of the main dive conservation bodies involved in the project.
