Who We Are
Scubavox is an initiative started in 2021 by three divers. A marine biologist who is a PADI IDC staff instructor, an information researcher with an interest in underwater photography, and an engineer hooked on undersea technologies. With several thousand dives between us, we can say with a high degree of confidence that we really, really love scuba diving.
Because we love scuba diving and the underwater world, we are seriously worried about what is happening to the oceans, above water and below. That’s why we decided to create a website to focus both on diving practice, and on marine conservation. Via our blogs, we draw attention to issues that impact on how we dive. Our database of marine conservation organizations and groups who do phenomenal work around the world to improve the state of the oceans and marine life is intended as a source of hope, inspiration and optimism.
We are just getting started and hope you will join us along the way!
See the change. Make the change. Be the change.
Sources of Information
The information recorded in this directory of marine conservation organizations has been obtained from online sources, including the websites and social media of the groups concerned. Keeping the info up to date and accurate is no small challenge, so we contact the groups periodically to confirm, change or add to their directory entry. If you come across anything that needs changing, please let us know.
Our intention is to focus attention to the awesome work being done in this all-important field, marine conservation, and to draw together in one single listing the names of organisations involved, to facilitate networking, to educate, to inform, and hopefully, to inspire.
The photographs and videos displayed in these pages come from a variety of sources. We have taken many of them ourselves.
