There are still a few places left on a scuba diving conservation project based on Tioman Island in Malaysia where you will be part of a small international group helping with research aimed at studying and protecting the beautiful but fragile coral reefs in the area.

For the first five days you will be familiarising yourself with the Reef Check research techniques and be based at a beach chalet resort on Tioman island. After this, you will move to a 45 ft sailing yacht research vessel, which will take you to remote areas of the Marine Park.

The expedition includes training as a Reef Check EcoDiver; with this qualification you are eligible to apply for PADI or NAUI Reef Check Speciality Course certification after the expedition.

The diving project is organised by Biosphere Expeditions the award winning, not for profit conservation organisation and runs between 18-30 March; 1 – 13 April & 15-27 April 2012 and costs £1390 per person, excluding flights to and from Malaysia. To take part you must be a qualified diver, with the minimum of a PADI Open Water or equivalent.
