September 9th, 2013, Phoenix AZ – Academy of Scuba is proud to announce our reaffirmation to the global movement to protect our oceans and waterways by partnering with Project AWARE and participating in the 100% AWARE program.
“While Academy of Scuba has always taken steps to protect the environment in our diver training courses and lake clean up campaigns, this is our official stance and commitment not only to the environment but to the Project AWARE program.” says Dominic Diodato, Academy of Scuba’s Project AWARE Liaison.
Diodato continues, “Divers and snorkelers are natural ambassadors for the aquatic environment. Starting out our students with the mindset early in their diving gives them the perspective to not only enjoy the underwater world but actively do their part to protect it.”
Joining the 100% AWARE Program also provides much need funds for collecting data and removing devastating debris worldwide. Securing protection for the world’s most threatened shark and manta ray species and strengths shark finning bans by closing the loopholes.
Academy of Scuba already participates in teaching many of the Project AWARE Specialties but in 2014 watch for some new Awareness Distinctive Specialties that will bring new value to our desert diving community.
