The Ocean Day event was a blast, we talked to folks about the Project AWARE Shark movement and scuba diving in general. Several other groups were there spreading the word as well.

I was shocked at the number of people who stopped by to say "hi" because they are friends or customers.

Our Fin-a-thon was a huge success.  Our fin-a-thoners ranged from 4 years old to 60.  We had one swimmer who did the back stroke for nearly 3 hours covering nearly 2 miles in the water.  Two other divers spent the full three hours on scuba on the bottom of the pool (basically watching the swimmers go by).  Our mascot “Bruce” who greets everyone in our shop was the driving force behind the whole event :)

Not only did I gather signatures for Project AWARE's shark petition during this month's Dive Against Debris event but the group was featured in the Hawaii Army Weekly (http://www.hawaiiarmyweekly.com/2012/03/16/soldiers-volunteer-for-sandy-cleanup/) for our efforts.

Being a scuba diver, I'm passionate about the underwater world and want to do what I can to help protect it so I've started organizing events through project AWARE.

It was an action-packed weekend for the divers at our PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre on Gaya island, who assembled to remove another discarded net from our beloved TAR Park in Kota Kinabalu.

After reporting the net and obtaining the relevant permissions, resident PADI Course Director Richard Swann assembled members from our staff team and Go Pro interns to attack the net.

The net removal procedure was explained to the team in a thorough, tailored dive briefing, after which they set off to the site to do the needful.
