3 new AWARE Shark Conservation Instructors with resident PADI Course Director Richard Swann (2nd from left)

There you have it! 3 more AWARE Shark Conservation Speciality Course Instructors to spread the shark love to divers everywhere!

Our recently qualified PADI Open Water Scuba Instructors attended this course with Downbelow at our PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre on Gaya island and joined the fight for saving our sharks.

Downbelow’s resident PADI Course Director, Richard Swann, donated his time to teach this speciality for free.

PADI also assisted by donating the application fees to the AWARE Foundation and Project AWARE donated all the learning materials used by both the Instructors and the students.

Essentially, all our candidates had to do was attend and pass the course, and commit to spreading the word on the plight of sharks.

Together we make a great team and set an outstanding example of how, as a collective, we can be more effective in the ongoing battle for the protection of sharks worldwide.

We wish our new AWARE Shark Conservation Instructors the best of luck in teaching as many students as possible about this important issue.
