Reef Dive Resort on Mataking Island, a
45-minute boat ride from Semporna, Tawau, will be hosting the 3rd Reef
Ball Coral Conservation Project. This year. Ocean Explorer together with
Pac Dome from Kuala Lumpur have taken the initiative to organize a group
of divers to collect broken and damaged corals to be planted onto the
reef balls. The corals collected will be identified, measured,
photographed and recorded for monitoring purposes. The coral gardens
will then create artificial homes for a wide variety of marine life.
This year, international participants include those from Europe, Japan,
Taiwan and other Asia Pacific countries. The Deputy Chief Minister and
Minister of Tourism, Culture and Environment, Tan Sri Datuk Chong Kah
Kiat will be officially launching the much-anticipated event.
