Make 2014 year of the OceanThe ocean is a miraculous place full of beauty and wonder. From the vibrant marine life to the incredible landscapes that can be found beneath the waters, it isn’t hard to understand why so many people take to scuba diving.

After all, isn’t the ocean’s beauty one of the reasons why you love to scuba dive?

Although the ocean is a beautiful place, it is still in danger and our underwater world needs protection. From endangered species to ocean pollution, the oceans are continually threatened with various problems.

Now is the time to take a stand and start creating change.

If leaders around the world take action, the state of the ocean’s future could drastically change for the better. Organization leaders, politicians, corporate CEOs, conservationists and scientists all need to work together and start producing results – but they aren’t the only ones who have the power to create change. Every person can help make a difference and become a leader, especially scuba divers who have seen ocean pollution firsthand. Through conservation movements like Project AWARE, scuba divers can team together and work on important issues such as Sharks in Peril and Marine Debris.

The more people who believe they can make a difference, the more likely we will be able to improve the state of the ocean.
