As part of the celebration of World Oceans Day 2011, Calypso Diving Resort in the Philippines launched an exciting Shark Protection Donations Programme. Since June 08th 2011, every ocean dive their student divers and customers do, Calypso Diving makes a donation in support of Project AWARE’s shark conservation initiatives. So in short, the more you dive with Calypso Diving the more donations AWARE receives towards giving sharks a fighting chance!
So far, more than 1,500 people have set up My Ocean profiles on ProjectAWARE.org. When we first launched the new website, we kept our eyes peeled for 10 of the most complete and inspiring profiles to feature on our blog. The ten profiles listed below have shown us that underwater conservation is a big part of their diving experience. These 10 profiles feature stories of ocean conservation action from around the planet.
To help celebrate the launch of the new Project AWARE, Thresher Shark Divers Malapascua will be hosting a very special event on June 8th.
Our House Reef is an artificial reef that has been under construction for 2 years. It is already attracting lots of coral growth and marine life.
We will be adding another structure to this reef: one of our old boats will be sunk, upside down. These boats attract coral growth and provide a covered environment for all manner of fish life to hide :-)
