About Eco Koh Tao
Eco Koh Tao specialises in preparing and instructing divers and dive professionals with an emphasis on all aspects of marine conservation. We believe that our training and education will make you a better diver and preserve our coral reefs for generations to come.
Our vision is to be the best provider of marine conservation education on Koh Tao and throughout South East Asia. To empower our customers to believe that change is possible and they can make a difference in the preservation of these resources.
For over 10 years we have managed to create and grow coral underwater at several dive sites around Koh Tao.
We conduct numerous citizen science projects to collate data for research and provide opportunities for study in theoretical and practical areas.
For over a decade we have been building and maintaining an artificial dive site named Junkyard. Using recycled material to create structures of an eclectic mix of designs and shapes, attracting fish life and other organisms.
The beginnings of many coral transplantation experiments began.
However, the site has become its own enemy. Being such an educational and training friendly dive site, it has attracted huge numbers of divers that we never imagined when we first started this project.
In the past, we have relied on the strong support of Crystal Dive Koh Tao, volunteers and donations from keen divers and conservationists.
But, now we need your help to expand the dive site and continue the reef restoration process.
3 years ago, we began a project where you are able to “adopt” a coral transplant. For your subscription, we will "plant" a coral from our nursery which you can name, and publish data which will feature measurements and photos every quarter to show the growth of your coral. If you are a diver, you are also welcome to join us and choose your own coral transplant for us to secure for you.
This program has been so successful with divers adopting coral transplants for their friends and families that we are having to build more structures to support the growth of the transplants. In years to come the reef will be self sustaining and hopefully flourish if environmental conditions are good.
Research data collected from these transplants will help us study coral growth in varying conditions.
Focusing on one subject each week, you can start learning about how you can help save our oceans.
