The Gili Eco Trust and the Global Coral Reef Alliance with the support of PADI Asia Pacific and Project Aware are proud to announce:

THE SIXTH INDONESIAN BIOROCK WORKSHOP
1st - 7th December 2008
Gili Trawangan
Lombok, Indonesia
http://www.biorock-workshop.org/index.html

Note: The Workshop is free for Indonesians.

Workshop Theme:
This training workshop provides the opportunity for dive shops concerned about the deterioration of the world’s coral reefs to start restoration projects using the most effective and exciting methods known, and to educate the diving public about saving coral reefs. The workshop will provide hands-on training in the practice of Biorock® coral reef and fisheries restoration and shore protection, including theory, design, construction, installation, monitoring, maintenance, and repair. The workshop will inaugurate the new PADI Introduction to Biorock Process - Distinctive Specialty, which can only be offered at locations with Biorock projects, and taught by PADI Instructors who are also Biorock Training Course graduates.

Over 200 divers have taken previous Biorock training workshops in Indonesia. With the involvement of PADI and Project Aware the process will now start to expand to other sport diving areas that are in need of restoration, starting new projects and supporting them through diver education and certification.

Who Should Attend:
Dive shop operators, hotel and resort managers, conservation groups, coastal zone managers, fishing communities,marine scientists, mariculturists, tourism agencies, seascape and landscape architects, engineers, artists, government fisheries, environmental, and tourism policy makers, and others who seek the training necessary to design,construct and operate their own Biorock structures for reef restoration, erosion control, tourism, mariculture, remediation or marine science.

Since hands-on, in the water instruction is part of the workshop program, we recommend that participants interested in that portion be experienced, certified divers.

We anticipate attendance from Indonesia, many Asian countries and from around the world, making this workshop a unique experience for participants to learn from one another about coral reef problems and solutions.

What You Will Learn
The workshop will be comprised of lectures, slides and videos on the theory and practice of current and past mineral accretion projects and Biorock coral nurseries in Indonesia, Thailand, Papua New Guinea, Maldives, Mexico, Panama, US Virgin Islands, Jamaica, Palau, Seychelles, Saya de Malha, India, Cuba the United States and many other locations.

Participants will receive practical training in design, construction and maintenance of coral nurseries. They will work with local welders, dive shops, fishermen and Pemuteran villagers to construct, deploy and install new coral and fish nurseries. After the workshop there will be an opportunity for participants to apply their knowledge and skills in starting new projects in other parts of Bali, other islands of Indonesia including Lombok and Flores (near the Komodo National Park), or to start projects in their own home sites.
