Coral reefs are among the planet’s oldest, most productive, and most diverse ecosystems. But, they are also one of the most threatened. Reefs around the globe are declining at an alarming rate, and although the problems have been well documented for over 50 years, not enough has been done to protect and conserve our planet’s oceans.
Conservation Divers aim is to not rely solely on governments to solve these problems, but to increase the capacity and skillsets of local managers and divers around the globe to empower a new generation of action oriented conservationists.
Through training courses they are giving people from many different backgrounds the knowledge to initiate action, and through their networks, they are help those who want to make a difference join up and realize their goals
At Azul Conservation we are able to offer a number of Conservation Diver certification detailed below. Each has a defined set of prerequisites, standards and requirements and can be completed in single or over multiple days and weeks depending on complexity.
All courses are conducted by Conservation Diver Instructors at a student ratio of no more that 4:1.
Please contact the conservation team directly for reservations. Note that courses are not available to start everyday and so may require some flexibility in your schedule. Since we share diving facilities with Dolphin Dive, if you would like to complete our training courses it is best to book in advance, especially during high season December – April.
