The event was previously scheduled on April 28, 2013, Sunday. The organization observed that the sea level is too low and it's not advisable for any activity so they moved the event on May 5, 2013.
The impact of global warming in many areas, as we've been informed through TV and newspapers has affected the Gulf of Thailand by a 3-5 degrees rise in temperature. As a result, it affected various species particularly the coral reefs of Thailand.
A single day event to plant corals along the coast and we're inviting everyone to join in their free time. The project is supported by the Foundation of Marine Science of Thailand.
Cost of participation: ฿750
1. Meal for Lunch

NOTE: I advise anyone who's interested to join in this project to be very sure that they're not suffering from a hydrophobia or inability to swim. The activity is purely about swimming and snorkeling and the volunteers are supported by life vests. But if you have a constant fear of water, we'll see you on our next volunteer activity then.

This is a very limited trip and a joint meetup between our group and Bangkok Scuba Diving Group
Enjoy the snorkeling!!
