Cultivating Life and Developing Ecotourism with Grand Cayman Eco Divers

Often nicknamed the “rainforest of the sea” coral reefs are some of the most diverse ecosystems on earth. There may be more than one million species inhabiting the coral reefs around the world. In many ways, they are akin to the rainforests, where many of the inhabitants have yet to be discovered. Unfortunately, coral reefs as we know them are dying and sadly their inhabitants are losing their homes. These fragile, yet vital ecosystems are under siege from a vast array of assailants including localized pollutants, global warming, invasive species, human carelessness, ocean acidification, and other aggressors. While many human inhabitants of our planet have been slow to respond to the problem or creating a mechanism of protecting these ecosystems, hope is within site: Grand Cayman.

The Scuba Sports Club of Westchester NY Dives into… National Geographic’s Encounter: Ocean Odyssey!

On November 18th, 2018 The Scuba Sports Club of Westchester NY launched the 2017 holiday season with a big expedition of members who sojourned into Manhattan NYC to experience the National Geographic Encounter: Ocean Odyssey exhibit. We all heard great things about the exhibit, and were so excited to attend together as friends, divers and avocational naturalists! Virtually all of us - at one point or other during our collective years – have been captivated by articles in National Geographic, and for two+ generations have enjoyed NatGeo television documentaries. These fired our interest in the undersea world, brought us to scuba diving, and ignited our environmental awareness. Hats off to National Geographic for incorporating continual technology advances. NatGeo has succeeded brilliantly integrating the public’s visual awareness (due to the internet/social media/BBC’s Blue Planet series, etc.) with multi-sensory experiences – way beyond two-dimensional print media -- into their mission! This exhibit certainly succeeded in that!
