Tips from the September Speaker

Samantha Whitcraft, our guest speaker from September provided some links to her programs, and ways divers can help:

Aggressor Adventures’ Green the Fleet Program

Sea of Change Foundation’s Brochure, About Sea Of Change video (featuring Guy Harvey), and Leading through Conservation & Research Zoom presentation/video (Foundation overview)

Sea of Change Foundation’s Reef Rescue and Rapid Response Program flyer (printable pdf) – our grant program that empowers divers as first responders to acute reef damage

Don't Let Your Membership Lapse

Even while they were closed, the New England Aquarium was still caring for animals and maintaining the facilities and exhibits. They were still keeping a crew at work, and running virtual programs.

Now that they are open with limited visitors, it's more important than ever to maintain your membership so they can continue to keep up with these expenses.

Your dive club membership ($15 add on to the Aquarium membership) allows us to have speakers every month throughout the year (which we will continue to do online).

The Aquarium launched an online advocacy tool as a way that people can show their support for the Aquarium. The tool helps visitors submit a letter to their elected officials asking Congress to support emergency relief funding for non-profit aquariums, zoos, and museums across the country. It takes less than 30 seconds and costs nothing to participate.

Support Your Local Dive Shop!

The local dive shops across New England continue to need your business! Many are now open reduced hours or open by appointment, and still offering classes virtually or equipment servicing.
