Ocean Conservation Matters

“With every drop of water you drink, every breath you take, you’re connected to the sea.” ~Sylvia Earle

The ocean is the largest ecosystem on Earth and is essential for all life, including humans. To ensure a sustainable future, we have to protect and preserve healthy marine ecosystems. The Casino Point Dive Park is a Marine Protected Area, ensuring it will still be here for future generations to enjoy. What happens to the ocean impacts all of us.

Two of PADI’s core Pillars of Change are Ocean Conservation and Industry Sustainability with a vision of a world where humanity lives in balance with nature. Our ocean is a tremendous source of inspiration and there’s always more to learn!

“People protect what they love, they love what they understand, and they understand what they are taught.” ~Baba Dioum

Ocean Conservation

Our Environmental Commitment

We can make a difference for ocean protection every time we dive. Everything we do is centered around sustainability. Whether it’s reducing our impact by making sure our products and gear are eco-friendly or joining in ocean conservation efforts, we take our personal responsibility as divers seriously.

Become a Torchbearer

There’s a growing community of ocean advocates taking action above and below the surface. PADI Torchbearers are passionately committed to our blue planet and creating ocean change. It will take all of us working together to restore balance between humanity and nature.

Citizen Science

Citizen science is all about informing. Our diving qualifications give us the skills to participate in research by collecting meaningful data to build a realistic picture of what’s going on beneath the surface – on a scale that researchers can’t manage alone. There are many opportunities to get involved – plus, it’s fun!
