For 4 months EAMT will dive and film different points spanning nearly the entire length of the East African coral reef system using stereo-imaging. EAMT will gather large-scale quantitative data on diversity, abundance and fish body size from South Africa to Somalia.

The data collected will be used in a wide range from education purposes, high schools, universities, through to NGO, and governments and MPA managers. The users are essentially unlimited. The value is in the exposure that is across platforms, from scientific to social media and all in between. Value is in the data that can be used by many different people.

We require interns to man our analysis stations and analyse the video footage to allow us to present the data to an international audience in East Africa and to place the data on our online portole where we are givieng the data away under open source conditions.

As interns you will gain valuable skills in fish identification, scientific field methods, statistical analyses, and be exposed to some of the most cutting edge coral reef research currently being conducted today.
