“We are deeply grateful for the support of our wonderful sponsors, Aggressor Adventures and SSI, and for all our generous donors, including California Diving News/Scuba Show, DAN, and Classified Diving.
“Without the dive and adventure travel community’s dedication to conservation and their generosity, this amazing auction, and the critical conservation it will fund would not be possible,” said Samantha Whitcraft, the Foundation’s Executive Director.
“We are so excited to work, again, with Guido Waetzig, SSI’s CEO, and so many conservationists working to preserve our coral reefs, terrestrial ecosystems, and threatened species,” says Wayne Brown, Aggressor Adventures CEO and Board Chair of the Foundation.
