    shortly I think it'll be time to put my skills to some other use rather than just training open water students and dive masters ( not that there is anything wrong with that of course ). You know it's that make a difference to the planet time.

    Does anyone know of any conservation projects around the globe that need divers or need volunteers with dive skill ?

    thanks in advance

    Try Reef Check. They are the largest coral reef monitoring program in the world and they specifically utilize local divers. They have teams in Thailand and 60 other countries worldwide.

    Check out their website at www.reefcheck.org or email them at rcinfo@ucla.edu.

    There is Greenforce. www.greenforce.org.

    I'm involved in a P. australis revegetation projet through my uni. It could be worthwhile seeing what volunteer projects are done through your local universities. Even if you aren't a student the may be willing to take you on board :)
