Coral ID workshop on Lizard Island

I have spent the last few days diving at Lizard Island on the Great Barrier Reef with the inimitable Russ Kelley and finally learning to confidently identify corals.  I was lucky enough to have Russ’ great tool – the Coral Finder in my ‘hot little hand’.  After a few dives with the Coral Finder, I was able to identify many corals to genus level at a glance. I would heartily recommend this great learning tool to any organization that wants to quickly train people to confidently and accurately identify corals.  I had a great few days on Lizard, hosted by Lyle and Anne and enjoying the company of other participants from around the world!
