DAN Tip of the Month



DAN Tip of the Month: Eco-friendly Diving
As we prepare to celebrate Earth Day on April 22, think about what it means to be an eco-friendly diver.
There are lots of things you can do to show your love of the underwater world.
---Streamline your gear so it doesn't drag and damage the site
---practice good buoyancy control and don't touch—anything
---If you must touch as you spearfish or collect lobster, be aware of local game laws and make sure you adhere to them.
---Finally, participate in the many cleanup days planned in your area; divers as a whole contribute greatly to helping keep oceans and beaches clean.

---collectively divers can make a huge difference. For more information, visit www.DiversAlertNetwork.org.
