The same way people usually think marine resources are infinite, they tend to assume that no matter the amount of trash dumped in the sea, the effects are always insignificant. As the oceans are so wide, we tend to believe that pollutants will dilute and the problem will be solved. But the current state of our oceans says otherwise. On the following posts we will learn more ...0 1
As divers, we learn how to appreciate the sea. And if we appreciate it, we should care for it. One of the most important things we can do for the environment is to learn how to be sustainable consumers. It is time to ask ourselves: are we eating sustainable seafood?3 4

Scuba Diving can actually save the underwater world!
The whole joy behind scuba diving is to encounter diverse marine life, and without them, diving isn’t half as exciting. So when an underwater environment is destroyed, sea animals perish, and scuba divers have nothing to dive for.
Scuba diving actually generates more revenue than required to maintain and protect the marine life in those environments. Therefore, scuba diving is an incentive to allow these sea creatures to prosper, and to protect their habitats. It’s unfortunate that we actually need an incentive to allow marine life to live and prosper in their own habitats, but at this point, we should leverage any incentive can make a difference.
One of The Sub2o’s purposes is to spread awareness of the issues that our marine life and oceans are currently suffering from. Scuba divers generally know of the marine life and water issues that the underwater world is dealing with. They know that by choosing to turn a blind eye to these issues, that they would cost them their whole hobby of diving, their passion. Lots of divers are passionate about certain sea animals, and have portrayed this passion in how strongly they support them and actively they try to protect and ensure their survival.
We invite all scuba divers to spread the message with us, that scuba divers can actually preserve and save marine life!
