Sea Turtle Ecology Course

Did you know there are 7 species of turtle living in our oceans and seas and as a species, they have been around for more than 125 million years…that’s longer than the Eastenders TV show! On Koh Tao (aka Turtle Island) there are 84 individual turtles that have been identified and named. If you find a new one while diving on Koh Tao you can choose the name.

Hammi the turtle

This is Hammi! Hammi is a resident Green Turtle at Japanese Gardens Koh Tao. This very popular dive site is perfect for beginner Scuba Divers and is visited by Mojo Divers during the Open Water Course on Koh Tao!

What Is The Course About?

  • You will learn about the history of these marine reptiles, their threats to survival, and how they reproduce and cope with challenges.
  • You will learn how to recognize and identify the seven different species.
  • Distinguish the mating patterns of each species.
  • Look at the different types of turtle migrations and see how they differ from other marine animals.
  • Learn the reasons for their current decline and what can be done to reduce the impact.

How Long Does It Take?

  • There are 5 chapters to read with a short quiz after each one, followed by an online exam.
  • You can take the exam as many times as necessary to achieve the required 100% pass rate. If you are a quick study it could take you just 1 day but there is no fixed schedule.
