Each Sunday in Nuweiba, you can now learn about the area's coral reefs through a 'family fun day' and award yourself with the PADI AWARE Coral Reef Conservation Specialty.
This weekly event aims to raise awareness in the form of trash dives helping Nuweiba maintain its unspoiled beauty and pristine coral gardens. Organized beach clean ups and underwater clean ups make a significant impact in helping us to preserve the amazing underwater ecosystems.
After the clean up, Emperor's Nuweiba team invites you to take part in the Coral Watch monitoring dive where you learn how to record and monitor corals and return data, all of which helps in preventing the destruction of our world's most fragile environment.
On completion of the day's activities, guests can choose to see a free Coral Reef Conservation presentation by the staff allowing them to earn the PADI AWARE Coral Reef Conservation Specialty. Here you will learn:
• How coral reefs function
• Why they are so important
• Why many reefs are in serious trouble
• What you can do to prevent further decline
A number of guests have already completed the Specialty, as pictured above.
The Specialty itself is FREE (within your day's dive pack) and costs just 35 Euro for the Certification fee (+10% tax).
