It was a busy day at the Downbelow PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre when a student group of 24 from the Sandakan Politeknik and another group of 17 UAE students from our friends at Wild Borneo Expeditions visited us at the same time.

Despite the hustle and bustle Richard, Downbelow’s resident PADI Course Director, who has a passion for marine conservation, still found time to give a brief educational explanation for the purpose and importance of the Project AWARE Foundations Shark petition.

Once explained all guests were happy to sign and pledged their support.
