During your time in Mossel Bay you will periodically take part in reef surveys. These surveys are conducted at 4 different locations to collect data on the different species that are residing around the reefs.
The data we collect from the reef surveys is being monitored over an extended period of time to see any changes there are on the reefs life around Mossel Bay. All data collected is part of a larger data collection project in collaboration with different universities.
With different environmental factors increasingly impacting ocean life it is vitally important that we understand the effects on different species and how the ecosystem is changing. From the information we collect we can determine which species are adversely effected by the changes and determine future impacts on current ecosystems and the reefs as a whole.
