Ancora takes environmental matters seriously and we expect our divers to respect and understand their role as visitors to the underwater world. Whether professional oceanographers, deep sea tourists, or citizen-scientists, we hope that learning how to breathe underwater will empower our new divers to make a positive difference and help ensure the health of our oceans. Ancora will always be an advocate for the protection of our planet and has allied with a few other organizations in order to support new research projects, educational strategies, and even social campaigns, dedicated to the defense of our oceans and the life they sustain. Besides publishing a select few of our partners’ field, dive, and expedition reports in Arcadia Journal, we also host several speakers throughout the year as part of our annual environmentally-themed lecture series and groupthink sessions.
Please feel free to reach out to any of the organizations listed below to learn more about their mission and how you can get involved. Just like us, our conservation partners are looking for creative ways to make a difference and we would all love your help. Through volunteering, interning, donating, joining a research expedition, or simply stopping in to say hello, they would love your help in amplifying their message.
