Marine Naturalist and PADI Dive Master Program

ReefWatch Marine Conservation has come together with Lacadives – India’s oldest Scuba Diving school – to bring a unique program that trains individuals to become professional divers qualifying them to work in India’s growing Scuba industry while equipping them with scientific knowledge of the marine world focusing on coral reefs, associated ecosystems and conservation.
This two month program is built to take someone from being just an ocean lover to an involved professional who is aware of the various nuances of coral reef ecosystems, has hands-on experience of working in conservation and with local island communities and is also a PADI Dive Master qualified to work in any dive shop across the world.

    Our Initiatives and Projects

    Our Initiatives and Projects

    The Karnataka coastline is a relatively understudied wildlife habitat. Our projects here include marine megafauna rescue, beach clean ups and sustainable livelihood programs with underprivileged coastal communities.

    The Andamans are part of India’s island territories, rich with diverse ecosystems including coral reefs, mangroves and tropical rainforests. Our work here includes coral reef restoration, research and awareness building.

    Blue India is our country’s only underwater imagery competition and aims to raise awareness about our oceans through the medium of photography. In our 3rd edition of Blue India we were proud to be associated with Canon India. Read more to see past winners and next entry dates.

    Blue India

    Even if you never have the chance to see or touch the ocean,the ocean touches you with every breath you take, every drop of water you drink, every bite you consume. Everyone, everywhere is inextricably connected to and utterly dependentupon the existence of the sea.” – Dr. Sylvia Earle

    While our fieldbases and active resoration and rehabilitation efforts are focused on India’s coastline, we truly believe that positive, lasting impact cannot be created by ignoring inland cities and communities. The existence of a healthy ocean is critical to everyone that lives in our country – whether or not they live coastally, eat seafood or enjoy surfing or scuba diving – and a healthy ocean depends on conscious choices by communities and people across its length and breadth.
