“We are the environment. The world is literally one biological process. The trees are our lungs. Look at the Amazon River system next to a human cardiovascular system, look at corals or trees and look at our lungs, you literally cannot tell the difference. They’re the same. So when we destroy our environment, we’re effectively destroying ourselves.” – Ian Somerhalder
As divers, protecting the environment is important to us as it is our home and it is where we work. At Sairee Cottage Diving, we conduct screenings of movies such as The Cove, Blackfish, The Inconvenient Truth and Ocean Planet once to twice a month and highly encourage our Divemaster Candidates to take part. These screenings are open to anyone and many of our staff often sit in as well.
We also try our best to do a beach clean up almost every day. We believe that every little bit counts and hence, encourage our divers to pick up any litter on the beach while we walk back to the shop from the Longtail.
As a 100% Project: AWARE dive center, we like to keep our staff up to date with the environmental issues happening around the world so that we not only have environmentally conscious staff but we also produce environmentally conscious divers as we share our information with them.
