We need sharks, and right now sharks need us even more. We must make the effort to spread education and awareness about the importance of sharks to our ocean ecosystem. We also must understand the danger humans pose to their existence, and what specifically we can do to help. As a Shark Guardian Diver, you will get the opportunity to support the cause through the three-part program: Education, Activity, and Research. One of our trained Shark Guardian Dive Leaders will be with you to guide you through each step. You can combine Shark Guardian Diver with any dive trip, course, or even snorkeling and complete the program simultaneously!
