Dear Divers --Sustainable Diving Practices

Hi guys... finally started a post-secondary Environmental Technician course so have been working on homework more than blog posts, but a couple publishable pieces coming soon!

In the meantime, for for ocean-lovers and divers (and aspiring ones), here is an article published by world nomads about safe diving practices:

https://www.worldnomads.com/make-a-difference/responsible-travel/planet/redefine-the-dive-10-tips-for-sustainable-divers?utm_source=worldnomads&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=nomadsnews-73-oct-row&utm_content=button

If you've been reading Nature Nimbus for a while you might have already noticed some keen personal interest shown in diving. Spending time close to nature is probably the most natural way we come to deeply appreciate it (no puns intended); nature lovers don't typically need to be taught this. At the same time, even in ecotourism humans are known to accidentally leave a negative impact on what we love so much.

Also, some freedivers on Instagram have cautioned for those using dive scooters to also make sure they don't end up chasing aquatic wildlife (as tempting as it may be) to get as close to them as possible.

If you happen to be going on a trip whether it's diving or exploring nature some other way, a quick google or asking a local naturalist or expert can help in getting some simple tips to ensure we are respecting the beauty we have come to visit, and seek to become a part of in that moment.
