New OWSIs Become Shark Aware Instructors in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah

The 3 new AWARE Shark Conservation Speciality Instructors with resident PADI Course Director Richard Swann

Downbelow has added 3 more AWARE Shark Conservation Speciality instructors to the growing army of shark protectors.

Our recently-qualified-as-Scuba-Instructor interns attended the pro-shark course at Downbelow’s PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre on Gaya island in Kota Kinabalu, where they have been interns for last few months.

Passionate about the plight of sharks, resident PADI Course Director Richard Swann donated his time to teach this course for free, with the help of PADI who donated the fees to the AWARE Foundation and Project AWARE who supplied all the learning materials.

Each time a new Shark AWARE Speciality Instructor is trained, the stand against the decline of our shark population grows stronger. Together we make a difference.

Best of luck to our new Shark AWARE Instructors; may you spread the shark-love far and wide!
