100% AWARE Partner Scuba Symphony Malaysia is offering a fantastic prize with its latest photo contest. In the lead up to CITES in March the theme for photo submissions is Rays (Mantas/Stingrays/Devil-rays, no Sun Rays). Divers can win a 5 day and 4 night Manado full board/twin-share diving package ex Manado airport, sponsored by La Rascasse Divers.
Project AWARE is working hard to protect sharks and rays through CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora), the world’s largest, most effective wildlife conservation agreement in existence. Divers regular donations can help us secure protection for the planet’s most threatened shark and manta species.
“Our goal is to raise AUS $1000 for conservation, to do so we're holding quarterly underwater photo contests dedicated to Project AWARE and showcasing the beautiful underwater world. Contest prizes given by our sponsors and ourselves are very attractive and have a total value exceeding USD$ 30,000!” said Sim, Scuba Symphony.
