Scuba Eco Specialty



Global pollution is threatening the oceans and seas. But in the Netherlands the marine life in the ponds and lakes is also in danger. Scuba Republic wants to make a difference. Can we do it together with you? As a diver you'll take on the role of ambassador of the underwater world.

"Water and air, the two essential fluids on which all life depends, have become global garbage cans."
— Jacques Yves Cousteau

Join the Scuba-eco project and pursue the PADI Scuba-Eco specialty! In this course you'll learn more about the relationships between nutrients, plants and animals in and around the water, the so-called food chain. For example, what happens when the normal relationships in this chain are disturbed by human influences?

You yourself take water samples and measure the water quality at that time. The results are entered into the Scuba-Eco online database. This way the information is available to scientists worldwide who want to prevent the major environmental problem of contaminating water with nitrogen and phosphates. 

Sign up quickly for the Scuba-Eco course.
