The 2019 Sea Save Foundation (SSF) travel auction is now live and accepting bids. Sea Save uses the monies raised during this auction to continue its critical mission – for example, this year, Sea Save’s lobbying was crucial to the decision reached by the delegates at the recent Conference of International Trade of Endangered Species (CITES) to extend protection to sharks, rays and other marine species. SSF also works to stop unsustainable shark-finning and to curb plastic pollution.
“Oceans do not recognise political boundaries, so we must work at the international level to most-effectively protect them,” explains Sea Save director, Georgienne Bradley. “This online fundraiser gives divers the opportunity to experience their dream vacation, at a discounted price and know they are helping to protect oceans.”
The auction features a stunning array of liveaboard and resort scuba trips throughout the Caribbean, the Galapagos Islands, Indonesia, Fiji, the Philippines, Micronesia, Costa Rica and many other exotic destinations.
Bid on your dream trip and know you will also be supporting marine conservation.
Thanks to its staunch dive industry supporters, the Sea Save auction collection has steadily grown over the past 11 years. The variety and value of destinations make it ‘the scuba travel auction of the year’. If you are planning a trip in 2020, you really owe it to yourself to browse this group of ‘Who’s Who’ scuba packages. But hurry – the auction closes on 19 December.
