Donating your wetsuit or dive gear is always appreciated, however, monetary donations help us execute our mission. You can help us out by supporting one of the following projects below or by donating directly into our general fund.
Poaching is a serious issue in Baja fisheries and an even more serious issue for fishermen who are working to recover their native fishing grounds. Help support these guys protect their scallop banks by supporting daily surveillance activities.
The most direct way to recover depleted fisheries is to refrain from fishing and let the wild population recover but sometimes there are little things we can do to speed up the restoration. These activities consist of invasive species removal, stock assessments and wild seed collection. By supporting these guys with salaries, gas, equipment and maintenance you will directly have a impact in restoring our marine resources.
Get a Wetsuit to a Fisherman
Donating your wetsuit is not the end of the story. We gotta get the suits to these guys! A donation of $10 will get one wetsuit across the border and in the hands of a fisherman is in need of a wetsuit recharge! Btw, the dude in this photo used to wear two worn out wetsuits: one with a giant hole in the front, the other with a giant hole in the back. He’d wear this setup at depths of 75 feet in the cold Pacific waters. He’s now diving warm and cozy, thanks to you guys!
While general fund donations seem like a boring way to help out, they allow us to cover our cost of doing business and keeps us going year to year. Without or basic costs covered, we wont be able to do the work that we do. Whatever doesn’t get used to cover our expenses will be destined toward a project that needs funding.
Diving Safety Exchange
We’re in search for dive computer donations but haven’t had any luck. Fishermen often work at depths of 75 feet for a period of 2.5 hours. The bends is a real issue and a regular occurrence. Our goal is to host a diving safety exchange that would integrate the use of dive computers with the type of diving that they do.
If you have a used dive computer to donate, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
