Yup, newbie full of odd questions here....If a diver was interested in volunteer/service opportunities related to diving and while diving, what would you recommend? I saw the PADI "Project Aware Specialist" class and I’m curious what that entails. I’m also curious about what other types of learning/service opportunities you all might recommend.

A very good question and it sure is not odd, wish more would look for ways to give back to the wonderful world of diving.

Below is a link to do just what you ask. Since you live in Miami it will be no problem for you to get involved. You receive a PADI specialty cert for it but that is not important. Giving back to our reefs that provide us so much enjoyment is the point.

You do not need to have a dive buddy to participate, you will work in groups with each assigned a different job. If you have any questions feel free to email them or me.
