Miss Scuba International 2012 is now in full swing! While there has been many beauty pageants held in the past, many embracing great causes, none have focused on our oceans. Life on Earth as we know it today began with our oceans. Thus, the organizers of Miss Scuba International decided that it was time an event such as this is produced to celebrate, not only, the inner beauty and courage of today’s modern women, but also to simultaneously advocate worldwide marine conservation.
The Miss Scuba International Organisation was founded by Mr Robert Lo is a strong believer in sustainable development within the realms of our marine environment. He hopes that by sharing the beauty and wonders of the underwater world, it will enable more people to understand how fragile our oceans are and how much more we all need to play in our individual roles to make a big difference to protecting it.
The winning delegate of the Miss Scuba International competition will undertake a year of ocean conservation campaigns to educate, and inspire the desire in all of us to do our best to safeguard our oceans. The pageant will also offer all a unique and comprehensive platform to launch their career.
Additionally, the aim of the organisation is to promote safe diving practices through worldwide professional training organisations, and elevate international tourism and cultural appreciation. As people travel to far off destinations to dive, they also learn to appreciate the cultural diversity that makes our world such an interesting tapestry.
Although this is the first endeavor in such an event, the organizers are hopeful in garnering support from those who are determined to see our Oceans survive for many more generations to come.
The Miss Scuba International 2012 pageant will be held in Bali, Indonesia on 30 November with contestants from 20 different nations.
