Scubafish is delighted to announce that we have taken a bold step forward in our ongoing commitment to support the Project AWARE movement of scuba divers protecting the ocean planet – one dive at a time.
As of today (23 Feb 2012), Scubafish will make a donation of AUD$10 towards ocean protection on behalf of each and every student we certify by issuing the Project AWARE card for every dive certification that we process.
Scubafish is 100% Committed to Ocean Protection
100% AWARE donations will target protection for the world’s most threatened shark species and the removal and prevention of marine debris from treasured underwater environments. Together we can make ocean protection a reality.
Here at Scubafish in Ko Lanta, we certify hundreds of scuba divers each year, so our involvement in the 100% Aware program represents a substantial investment on our part in the work being done by Project AWARE.
We strongly believe conserving the marine environment is our responsibility as leaders in the diving community and this is just one more way we can help and show our commitment to our marine environment.
What does this mean for our divers?
For our diving guests and PADI Course students, this means lots of great things:
- • When you complete a PADI Dive Course, you’ll automatically be issued with the latest Project AWARE certification card (rather than the standard issue PADI card)
- • Scubafish will donate AUD$10 to Project Aware projects on behalf of each any every one of our students
- • Each time you take a PADI Dive Course, you will be helping in the movement to address two major ocean issues – Sharks in Peril and Marine Debris
Did you know:
- • Less than 1% of our ocean is protected
- • 7% of all PADI divers choose to support ocean protection initiatives by making a minimum donation to receive the Project AWARE version of their PADI certification card
- • AWARE cards are Project Aware’s largest fundraising effort
There are many conservation issues converging on our ocean planet at once, but by concentrating on these serious problems where scuba divers are uniquely positioned to directly and positively affect real, long-term change, we hope to be able to make a positive, tangible difference in these two areas.
