The World Needs More SCUBA divers

August 16, 2011

PADI reports that it will  soon issue its 20 millionth scuba diver certification.  I think this is great news.  The world needs more divers, more people who appreciate the underwater world.

And I wish we could help even more people discover diving, especially those who don’t happen to come from the (typically) middle- and upper-class income brackets that get those PADI certifications.  If you agree, consider donating to a charity like the Schooba Academy in NYC.  (Zach Rome, the director, was a finalist for a Oceana’s Ocean Hero Award this year)

    Thanks! And if anyone has any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch! For the upcoming school year, we’re planning on expanding our programs to offer lifeguard and CPR training as well!
