When I need to get my head around coral ID quickly I use the Coral Finder. It just works.
Richard Fitzpatrick - Underwater Cinematographer and Shark Researcher
Received the Reef Finder yesterday. It’s simply wonderful! If I was a beginner diver, it’s exactly what I would wish to have. So much instant learning in such a small package. So practical and quite frankly, magical – opening the mysteries of the underwater world in 51 pages!
Difficulties in identifying corals underwater have been hampering coral enthusiasts and researchers alike for decades. I feel that the Coral Finder is a huge leap ahead. It is exceptionally well designed and easy to master. It is also timely, as the need for accurate survey has never been so pressing. I strongly endorse it for use anywhere in the Indo-Pacific.

It is by far the best coral identification survey tool I have seen…

I really feel that the Reef Finder will shine in an educational setting were students undertaking scuba and snorkelling activities are able to participate more inclusively.

Russell Kelley has produced an ingenious guide which can easily be carried underwater and allow anyone to identify corals on the spot. This is an enormously important tool for the biology and conservation of coral reefs.

I have had fun with the Reef Finder trying to imagine that I didn’t know answers. I think it will be great for my invertebrate lab.

The Reef Finder approach is unique for a printed product and matches the way a conversation goes with a reef visitor over something they saw and are describing it.
Chris Jones, Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority
I have the Reef Finder in my hands. Beautiful work!!!. Congratulations for this new achievement. Excellent for educational purposes and it will be very useful for any diver.
