Starting in 2008, Eco Koh Tao has been actively assisting local community groups with adopting regions of the island to survey, plan, construct, and maintain proper boat mooring systems.
Appropriate moorings provide suitable alternatives to dropping anchors and are an important passive marine conservation intervention.
By preventing the deployment of anchors in the first place, many of our other reef restoration projects can be rendered unnecessary.
Mooring Buoy Facts
* Installations prevent coral reef damage by anchors.
* Regular maintenance keeps buoys in good condition.
* Regular workshops are held to teach divers how to correctly manage.
* Different dive schools have been allocated areas to survey and repair as necessary.
