PADI AWARE Shark Conservation Diver specialty rating
What are the benefits of the PADI AWARE Fish ID Diver specialty course?
Sharks are crucial to marine ecosystems. They maintain a balance in populations of prey species and keep the ocean healthy by removing ill or diseased animals. They are an important resource supporting local economies through fishing and as an attraction to dive tourists.
But sharks are in a global decline. Overfishing has reduced many shark populations around the world to levels that threaten their continued existence. Shark numbers have fallen by more than 80% in many cases, and the continued existence of some species is at immediate risk in some regions. During this course you will learn more about Shark Conservation and how to interact with sharks safely in their natural habitat.
