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! zach@schooba.org. For the upcoming school year, we’re planning on expanding our programs to offer lifeguard and CPR training as well!
