Keeping our Project AWARE action campaign moving forward - 'KEEP THE REEFS OF SAL ISLAND CLEAN'. Our big THANK YOU to Barber Family that participated with us yesterday @ Santa Maria Beach -8m/45'. Cabo Verde Diving Centre and dive staff Ilson Evangelista (PADI MSDT 254113), Hendrik Almeida (DM candidate/internship) and myself. It's really sad to see how it's missing an Environmental Policy here in Sal. Starting from Local Communities education campaings, trash separation, trash collection and final destination. We know it's not so easy, but something must be done NOW!

Make 2014 the year of the Ocean Posted by Andrew Jenkins Make 2014 year of the OceanThe ocean is a miraculous place full of beauty and wonder. From the vibrant marine life to the incredible landscapes that can be found beneath the waters, it isn’t hard to understand why so many people take to scuba diving. After all, isn’t the ocean’s beauty one of the reasons why you love to scuba dive? Although the ocean is a beautiful place, it is still in danger and our underwater world needs protection. From endangered species to ocean pollution, the oceans are continually threatened with various problems. Now is the time to take a stand and start creating change. If leaders around the world take action, the state of the ocean’s future could drastically change for the better. Organization leaders, politicians, corporate CEOs, conservationists and scientists all need to work together and start producing results – but they aren’t the only ones who have the power to create change. Every person can help make a difference and become a leader, especially scuba divers who have seen ocean pollution firsthand. Through conservation movements like Project AWARE, scuba divers can team together and work on important issues such as Sharks in Peril and Marine Debris. The more people who believe they can make a difference, the more likely we will be able to improve the state of the ocean. For more information on how you can help protect the ocean and raise awareness, visit projectaware.org and your local PADI Dive Shop. #conservation #Project AWARE
