Tunku Abdul Rahman Park is a protected area to benefit tourism and education, which equally supports the economy of the local community.

Unfortunately, an illegal fishing net was found on one of the 49 dive sites in the park and as quickly as it was found, our team of local staff lifted as much as possible during their dive and reported the details of the situation to the appropriate local authorities.

 

The staff members involved in the removal are of different professional levels, from PADI Divemaster to Instructor. They worked together as a team and using the skills during their professional dive training to safely remove the destructive net from the fragile coral reef.

As a PADI professional, committing to PADI Standards involved a commitment to environmental protection!

During professional internship programs conducted at our premier PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre, dive training comprises of more than just skills and dive theory. Our Go PRO team of PADI Instructor Trainers, as well as our full time and experienced island staff team, continually impress on student divers to raise public awareness on the threats toward our marine environment, how to prevent these threats and ways to protect the natural world.

 

Marine Conservation programs, such as our ‘Coral for Life’ program, successfully reach a wide audience through social networking to inform and educate the public.
