How can you protect the marine environment ?
As divers and water enthusiasts we are privileged to have access to unique underwater environments. In fact, due to our up close and personal relationship with the underwater world, divers and snorkelers are often the first to recognize habitat decline and contribute to solutions. Be aware of every action when entering the marine environment and take every precaution to avoid any negative impact. In addition, be an ambassador for the protection of our aquatic world and gently remind others to do the same when necessary.
Tips for underwater photographers

However, there are a number of points to consider before attempting any photography in a fragile environment. Be sure to protect underwater environments before, during and after every dive.
