Since readily available information on the biodiversity of the Eastern Cape Coastline is limited, local scuba divers approached the founder members of this website to make a forum available to all divers- enabling them to identify species, display their photos and videos and to learn more about the reefs in general.
ECSD also hopes to create a stockpile of species images,videos and data for reference purposes.
The contributions to this website are all made by fellow divers in the Eastern Cape. We hereby would like to thank each and every one of you for your contributions and support in the development of this website.
Kindly take note that as we are not qualified marine biologists , only scuba divers with an interest in the biodiversity of the Eastern Cape coast line , we welcome input and advice and appreciate notification of any "incorrect" identification so that we may all learn and expand our knowledge.
