For over 25 years of dive charters we have watched first hand as many of the critters that we love to dive with - our friends - have been fished out and disappeared. It is impossible not to be concerned. We feel a huge need to do "something" and vigorously support conservation, scientific research and educational efforts.
The Socorro Conservation Fund was set up to provide charitable support to marine and terrestrial conservation work on the Socorro Islands, and is a tax-exempt 501c3 public charity in the U.S. Between generous donations from our guests and financial support from Captain Mike, we have raised over $300,000 so far.
Our most recent conservation project is a collaboration with the Pacific Manta Research Group, Director Robert Rubin. Our goal, with the help of our guests, is to provide Giant Manta data for research that will provide a scientific basis for protection of this species and the critical habitat in which it lives.
