Marine Conservation

Providing a safe haven to the marine life

How could we delve [dive] underwater, without caring for the underwater world? Temple has always been, and will continue to, involved in promotion of both awareness of marine life and marine biology, plus the creation of artificial reefs or FSDs – Fish Aggregation Devices – to boost fish stocks which of course divers live to see, and people love to eat. In addition of course we organize and execute underwater clean ups of rubbish, undertake drag-net recoveries, and try to educate our divers and any groups we can be exposed to about the importance of our oceans to humanities survival, and how they can be a part of it. Ask any of our team about how they personally aim to preserve our oceans and earth, and how they get involved at Temple in terms of larger scale environmental causes. And you, our divers! – If you have any great ideas or links about how we can better conserve or protect our marine coasts and life, please let us know. Our Conservation Team will be happy to chat with you and see what works best to start up your idea.

Marine Conservation Sites

About the Reef:

This site was named both after it's creators (Temple Adventures) and the shape of the site on the ocean floor. It is an amazing artificial reef, consisting of fully recycled materials such as concrete, rocks, trees, palms, and iron bars. Nearby is a terrific wreck. How did that scooter rider get so far out to sea? Residents include Steve the Grouper (50kg+), Casandra the yellow Frog fish, and many, many more. At maximum 18m depth, this site has 100+ species living on it, and must be seen to be believed

About the Reef:

One among the initial dive sites of Pondicherry. The name holds the key to this dive site. The most easiest place to spot sharks! A great site to explore and understand the various variety and diversity of Pondicherry.
