‘The Indian Ocean Naturalist’ is designed as a collective effort where every diver, traveller and explorer can engage with the process of furthering this understanding in order to effect change. ‘The Indian Ocean Naturalist’ aims to provide enriching travel & dive experiences by involving you in the conservation of this dynamic ocean system.
Learning about the inextricably linked marine & coastal ecosystems and their inhabitants. Informing yourself about the ocean as a complex system makes the experience much more than a recreational dive or walk. Engaging in long-term monitoring and ecological surveys. This interaction and inquiry will facilitate a deeper understanding of your surroundings.
Assisting by documenting your observations and experiences can be very valuable to larger research questions.
Doing this in a systematic manner makes for significant data that could feed into ongoing scientific research.
