In the entire cosmos, there’s only one blue planet – ours. The oceans are home to some of the world’s most incredible wildlife including many endangered creatures threatened by rising temperatures of the sea, changing pH levels and plastic waste. It’s crucial to seek out cruelty-free sustainable scuba diving experiences that value animal welfare to preserve these remarkable species.
The diving community increasingly makes environmental issues and environmental protection a part of its functioning. The EUF favors this movement and wants to support this where it is possible.
Every year, the EUF presents an award to a project that highlights the relationship between recreational diving and environmental protection. The aim is to give the submitted projects the opportunity to reach a bigger audience.
The EUF Eco project should encourage divers, diving schools and organisations or federations, involved with diving, to encourage all initiatives improving the environmental awareness in the diving community.
