Look closer to see more on your next dive. Look for symbioses, predator/prey and other relationships between aquatic plant and animal life. Learn not just what fish and animals are, but how they interact with each other and the environment.
We are lucky to have a qualified marine biologist as one of our instructors. Melbournes temperate waters are have a wonderful eco system that not many people know about. Being part of the temperate southern reef system, 30% of species found here are endemic to Victorian waters. Learn about this, why some creatures behave the way they do and what their role is in the aquatic ecosystem as well as so much more on this course. You will never look at the critters and reefs the same way again.
You put this information into practice during your two open water dives.
