Become a Torchbearer

Torchbearers are ordinary people just like us who are passionately committed to the blue planet and creating ocean change. United by a shared vision to achieve balance between humanity and the ocean, our community is leading a powerful movement to take local action for global impact.

As a Torchbearer, you’ll have access to ocean-curated content and receive updates on ocean conservation activities, events and opportunities.  You can connect with global leaders, promote local initiatives and share ideas with others. Most importantly, you’ll be able to create a meaningful impact.

Taking Small Steps


Turn your passion into purpose and join PADI AWARE or Green Fins! Even get involved in Citizen Science – the opportunities are endless.

Being a Torchbearer begins with small steps you can take today.

  • Stand Up for the Ocean:  We will speak up and use our voices to drive positive change.
  • Assume Responsibility: We will take direct responsibility for ocean health and act as stewards for the places we love, both above and below the surface.
  • Dive with a Purpose: We recognize that every dive is an opportunity to collect vital data that can be used to create future protection measures for the ocean.
  • Reduce Our Carbon Footprint: We will restore balance by reducing our own carbon emissions at work and at home.
  • Make Sustainable Choices: We will reject single-use plastic, support genuine eco travel and voluntourism, make sustainable food choices, dive with eco-friendly operators when possible, and support businesses that are taking an innovative approach to sustainability.
