The Gili Islands are mostly surrounded by hard corals, and hard corals are mostly night feeder. Their colorful polyps will be showed at night when they come out the hard base. This doesn’t mean that ther Gili Islands doesn’t have beautiful coral. The Gili Islands have a enormous variety of coral. And this is all ready proven by a lot of academic studies.

Another point about the marine life: Around the Gili islands you can find everything you like. Sure you can find turtles. The Gili Islands are famous for them. The Hawksbill and Green Sea Turtles are frequently spotted during some dives. Another attraction will be the Bumphead pariot fish during the days around full moon. These will visit the shallow parts of the reefs sometimes in schools of 50 pieces.

And don’t forget the White and Black tip reef sharks around the Gili Islands. These are friendly sharks, nothing to be afraid of.

If you love Macro there are sites where you can find the Frogfish, Mandarin Fish, Seahorses, Leaf Scorpion, Ribbon Eels, Snake Eels and Nudies. Oceans 5 is specialized in spotting all these little creatures.

Potecting the reefs

Oceans 5 is protecting the reefs. Every week Oceans 5 dive resort organizes a free reef clean up in the harbor of
Gili Air, Indonesia. A lot of people are asking us, why is our dive shop doing this and why is it so important to make awareness about the coral?

IDC Center Oceans 5  Gili Islands cleans up the reefs

So why are coral reefs so important?

Coral reefs are some of the most diverse and valuable ecosystems on Earth. Coral reefs support more species per unit area than any other marine environment, including about 4,000 species of fish, 800 species of hard corals and hundreds of other species. Scientists estimate that there may be another 1 to 8 million undiscovered species of organisms living in and around reefs (Reaka-Kudla, 1997). This biodiversity is considered key to finding new medicines for the 21st century. Many drugs are now being developed from coral reef animals and plants as possible cures for cancer, arthritis, human bacterial infections, viruses, and other diseases.

Storehouses of immense biological wealth, reefs also provide economic and environmental services to millions of people. Coral reefs may provide goods and services worth $375 billion each year. This is an amazing figure for an environment that covers less than 1 percent of the Earth’s surface (Costanza et al., 1997).

Healthy reefs contribute to local economies through tourism. Diving tours, fishing trips, hotels, restaurants, and other businesses based near reef systems provide millions of jobs and contribute billions of dollars all over the world.

The commercial value of U.S. fisheries from coral reefs is over $100 million (NMFS/NOAA, 2001). In addition, the annual value of reef-dependent recreational fisheries probably exceeds $100 million per year. In developing countries, coral reefs contribute about one-quarter of the total fish catch, providing critical food resources for tens of millions of people (Jameson et al., 1995).

Coral reefs buffer adjacent shorelines from wave action and prevent erosion, property damage and loss of life. Reefs also protect the highly productive wetlands along the coast, as well as ports and harbors and the economies they support. Globally, half a billion people are estimated to live within 100 kilometers of a coral reef and benefit from its production and protection.
Human-caused, or anthropogenic activities are major threats to coral reefs. Pollution, overfishing, destructive fishing practices using dynamite or cyanide, collecting live corals for the aquarium market and mining coral for building materials are some of the many ways that people damage reefs all around the world every day. (Bryant et al., 1998)

One of the most significant threats to reefs is pollution. Land-based runoff and pollutant discharges can result from dredging, coastal development, agricultural and deforestation activities, and sewage treatment plant operations. This runoff may contain sediments, nutrients, chemicals, insecticides, oil, and debris (UVI, 2001).

When some pollutants enter the water, nutrient levels can increase, promoting the rapid growth of algae and other organisms that can smother corals (Jones & Endean, 1976).

Coral reefs also are affected by leaking fuels, anti-fouling paints and coatings, and other chemicals that enter the water (UVI, 2001). Petroleum spills do not always appear to affect corals directly because the oil usually stays near the surface of the water, and much of it evaporates into the atmosphere within days. However, if an oil spill occurs while corals are spawning, the eggs and sperm can be damaged as they float near the surface before they fertilize and settle. So, in addition to compromising water quality, oil pollution can disrupt the reproductive success of corals, making them vulnerable to other types of disturbances. (Bryant, et al, 1998).

In many areas, coral reefs are destroyed when coral heads and brightly-colored reef fishes are collected for the aquarium and jewelry trade. Careless or untrained divers can trample fragile corals, and many fishing techniques can be destructive. In blast fishing, dynamite or other heavy explosives are detonated to startle fish out of hiding places. This practice indiscriminately kills other species and can crack and stress corals so much so that they expel their zooxanthellae. As a result, large sections of reefs can be destroyed. Cyanide fishing, which involves spraying or dumping cyanide onto reefs to stun and capture live fish, also kills coral polyps and degrades the reef habitat (NMFS Office of Protected Resources, 2001). More than 40 countries are affected by blast fishing, and more than 15 countries have reported cyanide fishing activities (ICRI, 1995).

Certain types of fishing can severely damage reefs. Trawlers catch fish by dragging nets along the ocean bottom. Reefs in the net’s path get mowed down. Long wide patches of rubble and sand are all that is left in their wake.

Other damaging fishing techniques include deep water trawling, which involves dragging a fishing net along the sea bottom, and muro-ami netting, in which reefs are pounded with weighted bags to startle fish out of crevices. (Bryant, et al, 1998). Often, fishing nets left as debris can be problematic in areas of wave disturbance. In shallow water, live corals become entangled in these nets and are torn away from their bases (Coles, 1996). In addition anchors dropped from fishing vessels onto reefs can break and destroy coral colonies (Bryant, et al, 1998).

Around the Gili Islands there is are the same kind of problems. The Gili Islands were attacked by a bleaching event, sand erosion by coastal developments, dynamite fishing, compressor fishing, coastal developments on the beach, waste water problems, plastic problems and more. It is time to stand up, to do something about it. That’s why Oceans 5 organizes free Beach and Reef Clean Ups.

Oceans 5 supports actively the Ocean CleanUp program and Shark Guardian.

Oceans 5 is also organizing events, the next event will be the 25th of August: a presentation about Mola Molas, the Sun Fish.

The role of the scuba instructor is vitally important – instructors are ambassadors, delivering enlightened and innovative scuba instruction to those wishing to learn to dive. People put their trust in you and you teach them to breathe underwater for the first time! It is an exciting and rewarding career – but it is also a responsibility not to be taken lightly.

If you have a passion for diving and believe it is crucial people receive the best instruction, then this program can give you the skills to deliver.

During the PADI Instructor Development program you’ll learn the PADI System of diver education, standards and procedures, effective academic teaching presentations, teaching in confined water, conducting open water training dives and additional related topics.

After successful completion of the IDC, candidates must successfully complete the PADI Instructor Examination (IE). Candidates will be evaluated on dive theory, academic teaching, confined-water (pool) teaching, open-water teaching and general diving skills and professionalism.

As a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor you can conduct the entire range of PADI experience programs and PADI diver programs, from Open Water Diver through Divemaster (except for specialties and PADI Emergency First Responder, which require specific Specialty Diver Instructor and Emergency First Responder® Instructor ratings).

After successfully completing your PADI IDC and IE, you receive a certification card and certificate denoting this rating. You’ll also become a member of PADI and receive benefits, including the ability to purchase professional liability insurance (which may be required to conduct some activities).

How long will it take?

It takes 10 days. Take Some of Your IDC Online – save more time for diving!

Where can I go from here?

PADI Specialty Instructors have the best of both worlds. Not only have earned the qualifications to conduct main stream dive programs such as the PADI Open Water Diver, Advanced, Rescue Diver and Divemaster programs, but they can also conduct PADI Specialty Diver programs.

Free Workshop “New PADI Open Water Diver Course” Gili Islands

PADI unveiled the latest evolution of their popular PADI Open Water

Diver course at the 2013 DEMA Show. The revisions include changes to

knowledge development, confined water and open water training, as well

as new media training materials such as the highly anticipated PADI

Open Water Diver Touch, a tablet app.

The PADI Open Water course was built on a solid instructional

foundation, and it is probably the most popular global entry-level

diving course. However content updates were due, as well as

opportunities for superior student-centered learning and

confidence-building through refinements to in-water training. The

revisions grew from comments and suggestions gathered from the entire

PADI family, from the top five percent of PADI Members internationally

(those who certify the most divers), from those conducting beta

trials, from evaluation of diver incident reports, and from 13,700

surveys of new Open Water Divers.

Changes to the course itself, the revised course introduces

revolutionary student training materials, specifically the Open Water

Diver Touch. The Touch integrates the manual text, learning

objectives, video clips, and progressive self quizzes into an

interactive learning experience. In addition, the new PADI Skill

Practice and Dive Planning Slate provides PADI Instructors a new way

to assess student confidence. The slate also guides students in dive

planning.

“The PADI organization is dedicated to teaching diving in ways that

are effective, engaging, and enjoyable,” says Drew Richardson, CEO and

President of PADI Worldwide. “The revised Open Water Diver course

revision applied instructional design, research and experience, along

with new state-of-the-art media, keeping PADI Members on the leading

edge of diver training.”

On the 23rd of July Oceans 5 Dive Resort, a PADI Career Development

Center located on the Gili Islands, is organizing a free confined open water

workshop. During this workshop PADI Course Director will explain the

changes and shows everyone who is interested in his ideas how to

demonstrate the skills.

All instructors and divemasters welcome!
