Most times the news is rancidly depressing, I often scroll my feeds and see greed and ignorance eating up our planet without remorse. Which is why I want to share a positive story with you about an amazing young mind, that of Boyan Slat and his battle against water pollution.
Plastic pollution has permeated the farthest and most uninhabited regions of our ocean. I believe that every dive should be a dive site cleanup, which is exactly why I am calling you out as a diver and creating this challenge. I challenge you to pick up that garbage and put in its place!
To stay in that place where time slows down, where you are weightless and where nature constantly surprises you. To savor that blissful feeling is what every diver wants. It always happens too fast. Lucky for us, there is one thing that we can always improve. Reduce air consumption.
How turtley do you need to be, to be turtley enough to join the turtle club? I would say more turtley than you can ever imagine. Most turtles don’t even make the club as only 1 in a 1000 turtles make it to adulthood. his is because the life cycle of a sea turtle is pretty intense.
You would think that teaching or diving with children would be difficult and scary. When I first became an instructor it was definitely something I was nervous about but it really isn’t that bad.
