Sign Up Now To Protect The Underwater World You Love
PADI recently announced the official launch of Adopt The Blue®, the world’s largest network of underwater sites for ocean conservation, to Dive Centers, Resorts and Professional Members around the world.
This program, managed by PADI AWARE Foundation, will expand on the former Adopt a Dive Site initiative and actively support PADI Members like you to take local action for global ocean conservation.
In the lead up to this upcoming World Oceans Day, PADI & PADI AWARE Foundation are calling on PADI Members everywhere to sign up for the program. The application takes less than 5 minutes and can be completed either via the PADI AWARE App. Once completed, your underwater site will be displayed on the Adopt the Blue conservation map, visible to all PADI website visitors when it launches on June 6.
If every PADI Member adopts at least one site between now and 2025, we can reach our goal of 10,000 underwater sites that will serve as the driving force for establishing new Marine Protected Areas around the globe in the coming decade.
“The ultimate success of Adopt The Blue, like all AWARE programs, is dependent upon the PADI Members’ active participation in the program. By joining us in one of the most ambitious conservation programs on the planet, we can work together to protect the underwater world we love.” says Danna Moore, Global Director of PADI AWARE Foundation.
