The Guam MDA Treasure Hunt was a huge event attended by more than 300 people in Guam last Saturday.
The theme was treasure but the treasured reefs of the island and the region were the topics of discussion.
I presented a look at the major preserves on Fiji, Yap, Guam and Rota and talk of their various stages of progress and successes to date. Film from Beqa Adventure Divers in Fiji and modeling by Elaine Kwok highlighted the evening’s imaging. Guam’s Chris Bangs also showed amazing macro images and sperm whale photos taken around Guam.
Dr. Drew Richardson, PADI President, talked of mobilizing PADI’s 17-million members worldwide for the betterment of the coral reefs and the seas. PADI’s Project AWARE has grown in size and scope annually since it’s inception and aims to make positive changes in the world’s seas. Richardson was assisted by Theresa Gulledge, the PADI Diving Society Manager.
This highly popular and successful MDA event featured great prizes, dinner and drinks and lots of fun for many enthusiastic Guam divers and families.
