As a Scuba Diver, would you be willing to pay a yearly dive license fee, to be collected and used for marine conservation?

[Choose #1] I don’t trust the government with my money. Would rather donate to a non-profit that promotes marine/ocean conservation.

[Choose #1] Quebec has such a fee, $45/3 years. And guess what it’s not used for marine conservation.
