Conservation Diving

Marine conservation is important. We as humans seem to have taken charge of the world. It is our moral duty to protect and conserve the Marine world and the home they live in.

 

Plus it is common sense. Imagine how scuba diving would be if there were no fish, no coral, no plants. Just a mundane sandy bottom and a few rocks obscured in darkness. And to be honest of the oceans were for the most part dead, we would be too!

 

“The ocean is the lifeblood of Earth, covering more than 70 percent of the planet’s surface, driving weather, regulating temperature, and ultimately supporting all living organisms. Throughout history, the ocean has been a vital source of sustenance, transport, commerce, growth, and inspiration.

 

Yet for all of our reliance on the ocean, 95 percent of this realm remains unexplored, unseen by human eyes.” {National Ocean Service}

 

So that means we have only explored 5% during the last several centuries and in that time, well actually in the last century, we have managed to pollute almost of all the world’s oceans without having bothered to explore them first. Humans are irresponsible idiots!
We pollute our oceans with plastic bottles and bags, which bob around on the currents. Fishermen’s nets are left so that whales, dolphins, turtles, and other marine life all get caught up in them.
Thanks to YouTube, you cannot miss footage of people / divers trying to save a whale or other aquatic beings from entangled, lead weights and just general rubbish, even sewage. The rubbish is endless and we are just dumping into someone else’s garden without regard.

 

Can you image going home and finding you can’t get into your house because someone has dumped something on your driveway or you can’t see out of your windows because someone has thrown paint against the windows or even worse you or your kids are sick from food poisoning. You would do something about it … In fact you would demand change.

 

“If you turned up at your office and there were just the four walls and a floor because they had been contaminated, how are you going to do your work? Now imagine you go diving and there are no fish, no marine life, no coral, no little sea horses catching the current, it’s just sand and sea. Do Mother Nature a favour. Live in the world with a little more forethought about your surroundings and treat our underwater allies respectfully. Keep our offices clean!”…. Scott Mason

 

There are many Conservation Programs all around the world. You can learn from these programs about everything that can be done to save the underwater world including, how to save coral, how to help construct new reefs, why they are so important, how they function, why it is bad to take coral from the sea and how to prevent further damages.

 

The list of damage is endless and the oceans need a helping hand, so why not give some of your free time to help a conservation program or even start your own!

 

Living wild species are like a library of books still unread. Our heedless destruction of them is akin to burning the library without ever having read its books.
