Coral Spawning at Pulau Hantu

Date April 21, 2008


This year’s mass coral spawning in Singapore is estimated to fall over the next few days, from 23 – 25 April, 2008. As this period falls over Earth Day week, we’re making this dive a part of our Earth Day 2008 activities!

If you’d like to join us for this dive, you have at least be an advanced open water diver or its equivalent. You are required to have a camera and your own slate. Divers will be paired up and required to survey a designated zone around Hantu Island. Details of the spawning (should it happen! there’s no guarantee!) such as the time, depth, species, and it’s location should be recorded. This data will be collated with surveys being done in other areas of Singapore, and will help scientists in understanding the factors that influence coral reproduction in Singapore and the nearby regions.

Time: 1800 – 2200 hrs
Venue: Pasir Panjang Ferry Terminal
Cost: $95.00
Registration for this dive has closed.
