- Securing new protections for over-exploited shark and ray species.
- Working with dive volunteers year-round to remove and report marine litter from underwater environments and pushing for policy changes leading to marine debris prevention at national, regional, and international levels.
- Leading and inspiring the next generation of Eco-divers and using the power of scuba to influence change.
- Strengthening partnerships with conservation groups, government bodies, responsible corporations, and others committed to eliminating marine debris and protecting shark and ray species at risk.
