Conservation IDC Internship
Our Conservation IDC program includes our industry leading Complete IDC Internship with all the associated benefits such as unlimited preparation and team teaching experience and combines it with our unique conservation week program that focuses on research and conservation of two of Bali’s iconic animals – Mola Mola and Coral.
During this course you will learn to identify different growth forms, small and large polyp hard corals and how to easily distinguish between hard and soft corals. You will not only learn ways to differentiate between corals but you will also learn about the individual coral animal – the coral polyp, its life cycle and its significance to the marine ecosystem. After developing a deeper understanding and appreciation for corals the course moves on to looking at the threats that corals face and the ways we can help. As part of the course you will visit the Ocean Gardener coral farm in Sanur, help to fragment corals and then transplant some corals from the farm onto our house reef in Sanur.
You will also learn about the differences between the different ocean sunfish species and the ways to tell them apart. You will also learn about certain behaviours, recent findings as well as new questions that have arisen from the research so far. You will learn how to identify individual fish, how to take a good photo for identification purposes and help to process photos of sunfish for Ocean Sunfish Research. If you’re lucky you will be able to process your own photos of sunfish and check to see if your fish has been seen before!
