Coral Cay Conservation (CCC) and ex-volunteer turned Project Scientist, Oliver Wood, have worked to produce an identification guide for volunteers working on the Philippines project.
Volunteers are expected to learn over 100 fish, 40 corals, 25 marine algae and 60 invertebrates, including sponges, soft corals, and Crustacea, during the first 2 weeks of their expedition prior to taking part in underwater coral reef surveys using SCUBA equipment.
Previously a number of books and guides were used to aid the teaching process, which many volunteers found a huge task; this guide brings together these resources in a light, A5 format guide, with full colour photos and illustrations of all ‘target’ survey species and more.
This guide is available for order by phone from CCC Head Office and is priced at £14.50 + P&P. Call + 44 (0) 207 620 1411 for your copy.
This book provides an integrated overview of the function, physiology, ecology, and behaviour of coral reef organisms.
