Welcome to DiVo
DiVo is an Australian-based non-profit organisation whose aim is to bring recreational divers to the world of volunteer diving in marine conservation and research causes.
For a scuba diver who wants to:
That’s where DiVo comes in. We identify activities suited to the recreational diver looking to be a volunteer diver in the world of marine research and conservation. We bring you to the activity.
And through the DiVo website, we hope to aggregate a one-stop shop so that the recreational diver can easily find out more about the volunteer marine conservation and research groups out there.
This way, more recreational divers get introduced to marine conservation and research. And the dive voluntourist will have a dive with a difference to make a difference.
GOT YOU INTERESTED? Well, for starters, how about going to Bali to help a village move away from cyanide fishing to sustainable netting, and rebuilding their coral reef by hand?
Through volunteer work, we got to find out a little about the two species of manta rays, with the rarer being the transoceanic giant Manta Birostris. Off Baja Mexico, DiVo was treated to closeups not only the giant manta, but whalesharks and amazingly, mating dolphins in the wild! Check out this video. And read the blog.
