Oldies but Goodies

BYO Guides is proud to present the very best in coral identification audiovisual learning… leftovers. This page contains a selection of videos that should be deleted but aren’t. Check out “60 seconds” for a laugh and “Tips and Tricks” for some very useful workflow err.. ahh… tips and tricks.

How to use the Coral Finder

(Duration: 10 minutes)

Check out the videos below for an introduction to using the Coral Finder underwater. (Note: the free coral identification video training course can be found at the Coral Hub.) The Coral Finder takes the hassle out of learning to identify corals by taking a WYSIWYLF approach – What You See is What You Look For – this means the shape, texture or life habit of the coral in front of you drives your inquiry. The Coral Finders unique visual logic system then sends you to a page of Look-Alikes and our eyes and brain (the onboard visual super computer) do the rest. Check out the workshop results for people using the Coral Finder – even complete novices are empowered within an hour.
