By simplifying the information and teaching the crucial processes of coral rehabilitation is similar to teaching gardening. Instead of teaching a person to become a marine biologist that could consume great amount of time, energy and resources; we teach people the gardening process which is quicker and more effective in addressing the current rate of destruction of the coral reefs.
Why need this workshop when people can just go and do it? The answer is similar to gardening. Everyone can plant seeds and wait for the plant to grow. Rate of success differs from one gardener to the next as techniques, maintenance and knowledge are. This workshop helps point out the important procedures that lessen stress in the corals and give directions on its monitoring and care. By equipping a person with knowledge and experience the results is better and more consistent among the coral propagators. This simple yet effective education system enables Ocean Quest to recruit larger number of people and achieve broad scaled coral restoration.
