My Travel Story

Greetings all! Diving has always been something magical to me. It has given me some of the best moments of my life with its diversity and beauty. Unfortunately, not all humans respect this fragile ecosystem and have heavy contributed to the degradation of its coral reefs and many native fish species. Becoming a divemaster is the first step in entering the field of marine conservation as it gives me the skills and knowledge to participate in expeditions to help give back. Once my internship is complete I hope to join a team of like other likeminded divers on expeditions around the world.

Now that I have been accepted into a divemaster internship I still face the same overwhelming expenses that kept me from doing this much sooner. Luckily, the actual internship is work-to-pay so many of my expenses are already covered. However, I still have to pay for accommodations, travel, and prerequisite classes.
The fishies and I appreciate yout help :)
