A coral bleaching event can be triggered by many factors but typically they are caused by increased temperatures. Bleaching occurs when the corals eject the symbiotic algae that live in their tissues. The algae provides the coral with a large percentage of its food, so the coral will die unless the stress is removed and the algae returns to the coral tissue. Depending on species, corals can live up to two weeks after bleaching.

Reef Resilience

Coral bleaching is a unique environmental problem as it is not possible to react to the cause – increased temperature. However it is possible to prepare coral reefs to resist bleaching by building their resilience. Building resilience means to ensure coral reefs are as healthy as possible, in which case they are less likely to bleach. A healthy reef means the entire reef ecosystem including all the creatures living around the corals.

To increase reef resilience you can:

  • Avoid all reef damage by briefing divers not to touch any part of the reef
  • Decrease the likelihood of damage by training divers to have good buoyancy
  • Remove all stressors such as marine debris, fishing nets and anchor damage
  • Do not allow divers to remove anything natural from the reef
  • Improve water quality by ensuring sewerage and other pollutants such as detergents are not released from dive boats
  • Decrease land-based run-off of harmful pollutants such as oil, fertilisers, pesticides, sediments etc by working with local landholders
  • Decrease fishing activity by lobbying for marine park protection for local reefs
  • Rotate visits to several different coral reefs to give each a period to recover
  • Combine forces with other dive operators in your area to strengthen your collective voice

Education

You are in a unique position to educate your divers. Show your divers the affects of coral bleaching and tell them why it is happening. If reef closures stop you from diving a coral reef, tell your divers why it is happening. The aim is to educate your divers about coral bleaching, and motivate them to demand that their governments act on the cause: climate change. You can build an environmental message into all your dive briefs and courses, as well as run Project AWARE specialty courses that educate divers and non-divers about the marine environment. Visit the Project AWARE website for the tools and courses.

Monitoring

You are uniquely positioned to gather data. The data you gather is vital in convincing governments to act. CoralWatch has developed an easy to use system for reporting coral bleaching. Train your divers and snorkelers to participate. If you need CoralWatch resources please email us directly. To learn more about CoralWatch you can watch the CoralWatch Seminar: www.projectaware.org/cwseminar. You can also view data on coral health at www.coralwatch.org

For a greater understanding of the issue of coral bleaching and strategies for addressing the problem download NOAA’s Coral Reef Managers Guide to Coral Bleaching. There is lots of very useful information providing advice for Reef Managers on what do to during a bleaching event. You may need specific permits to undertake some of these activities.

Responding to coral bleaching requires year-round action to build the resilience of coral reefs. By reducing impacts, educating divers and gathering data, you are giving your reefs a fighting chance next time a bleaching event occurs.

A total of 30 volunteers from ScubaSG.com turned up at Pulau Hantu on 28 Nov 2010 for the first ScubaSG Underwater Cleanup.

The divers were grouped into 2 teams and  had managed to cover a huge area of Pulau Hantu due to the favorable diving condition today. The visibility was between 2 to 3 meters with very mild current throughout the dives. In total, the divers managed to bring up 16 bag of debris from the water. Among the debris are plastic bottles, glass beverage bottles (whole and in broken in pieces), detergent and chemical containers, styrofoam bits, plastic sheeting, tires, abandoned fishing nets, food wrapping, and various other mainly plastic material which have floated in with the daily tides.

To test the competency of the volunteer divers as well as brief volunteers on how to safely remove debris from the reefs without harming the reef and themselves, Big Bubble Center has helped organized a Buoyancy Performance Session.

The event started at 1400hr and ended at 1800hrs.

Welcome to the Big Bubble family and remember always dive safe!.

Sep 11, 2010

In conjunction with the International Cleanup Day on 25 September, Big Bubble Centre is organizing Project AWARE Beach & Underwater Cleanup from 24-26 September 2010 at Pulau Dayang. We invite all divers to take the plunge and do their part in preserving our precious marine environment.

Your underwater cleanup efforts are significant, helping influence change one piece of debris at a time. Every piece of litter collected and reported is compiled into national and international reports helping to influence change. It’s the best way for you to share your concern for the environment and encourage others to do the same.
