WHY PADI AWARE SEA TURTLE AWARENESS DISTINCTIVE SPECIALTY COURSE?

 

The goals of Sea Turtle Awareness course training are to introduce the sea turtle species common in our tropical waters, as well as to familiarize you with the role of Project AWARE in preserving the aquatic environment.  We will also provide you with the knowledge and skills needed to identify turtles and record sightings, and inform you about decline in sea turtle populations, importance of sea turtles to marine biodiversity

and what they can do to reduce the loss of sea turtles worldwide.
