PADI AWARE SHARK CONSERVATION COURSE KOH TAO

 

Learn about sharks and their importance the the marine ecosystem and how we benefit from them

For centuries, humans have feared monsters in the ocean.

Leviathan, The Kraken, Hydra. The list of mythical creatures is endless, but Sharks are real and they are not monsters.

Since the infamous movie “Jaws” hit the big screen in the 1970’s, the perception of Sharks was that they were killing machines that had a taste for humans. In fact, most sharks are extremely timid and prefer to not interact with humans at all. 

100 million sharks are killed each year for sport, shark fin soup, cartilage and other nonsensical reasons. Its time to stop this to save this important species and keep our oceans healthy.

Sharks are a critical element to the health and balance of the marine ecosystem due to being an apex predator and their role in keeping a balance in their environment.

Take the PADI Shark Conservation Course and protect Sharks.

Part 1: Theory

After an introduction between you and your Instructor you will complete the necessary PADI paperwork before moving on to theory.

The Knowledge Development part of your PADI Shark Conservation Course starts by self-study with your personal copy of the PADI manual. 

This will introduce you to the conservation status of sharks, why they are unique and vulnerable, and the importance of healthy shark populations.

You will also learn how to manage threats to sharks, recognize the value of sharks and remove barriers to conservation and actions you can take to protect sharks and how joining a global movement of divers can help to protect sharks. about the interaction and relationships of marine life and their symbiotic relationships.

Together with your instructor you will then go over those Knowledge Reviews and relate these to the specifics of the marine ecosystem here on Koh Tao.

Part 2: Dives

For your PADI Shark Conservation Course we will get on one of our 3 custom built dive boats and go out for two dives

On these dives you will be looking at the environment and whether it is suitable for sharks.

Your Instructor will help you identify potential hazards to Sharks in the area that could impact their health.

If you are lucky on your dives, you may see a shark species. If you do, your Instructor will help you identify the species

After your dives, we will add the information from your dives in your dive log book and you will be a certified PADI Shark Conservation diver!
