Amongst which:

The elliptical casing with special fold out opening. 
Instant cam-lock closure of the casing.
The folding diaphragm for use with a large regulator lever. 
The regulator lever with its computer designed profile.
The tilting movement of the piston. 
The insulating anti-freeze between the regulator valve and casing.

Marine conservation
Coral Reef Program in Key Largo 
Divers can work side-by-side with marine scientists to aid in reef restoration during a series of coral restoration dives set for October 19-22 at Amoray Dive Resort in Key Largo.

Focused on environmental education, the group advocacy trips are to include educational lectures and dive programs to restore endangered staghorn and elkhorn corals. Hands-on activities are planned for both on land and offshore at Key Largo’s Coral Restoration Foundation nursery and surrounding reefs. 

Leading the education and dive trips is coral restoration expert Ken Nedimyer, president of CRF, as part of the nonprofit organization’s mission. Staghorn and elkhorn are both listed on the endangered species list and Nedimyer’s goal is to turn that around. 

Class sessions precede dive trips and focus on coral health, corals’ function in marine ecosystems, identification of natural and manmade threats to coral and means to protect the resource in the Florida Keys. Program participants receive hands-on experience in coral restoration and propagation, and learn directly about the impacts on Florida’s reefs and how individual citizens can help.
