Instillation of Mooring Buoys at Coiba National Park


Scuba Coiba has been contracted by the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute and Conservation International to install and monitor forty new mooring buoys at dive and snorkel sites throughout Coiba National Park. The operation, coordinated and supervised by dive professional Kevan Mantell, was started on May 16th and will terminate by end of this month.

The moorings will not only have a positive impact on conservation and sustainable use of the dive sites at Coiba, but also will increase the safety and comfort of local dive and snorkel tour operators and their guests.
