Live from ADEX

One more day at ADEX. If you haven't yet been down, all you need is a few hours to meet up with the people from Wildaid (booth 125), and the Nature Society of Singapore's Marine Conservation Group (booth 226). They have on sale, the beautiful coffeetable book, Unveiling our Seas, a story about marine life in Singapore waters.

See also Ocean Environment at booth 634 and 638, to teach yourself more about the marine environment.

Also, you should know there are tons of diver operators here from throughout the world and region! if you've been longing for a holiday in some exptic place, you have to visit ADEX. Coming to meet the dive operators means you get a chance to talk with them and assess if they are responsible dive operators. With just a few simple and innocent questions, you can find out if they're involved in reef conservation projects in their area, if they practice sustainable resort management (i.e. the use of septic tanks and recycled water, biodegradable toiletries etc) and if their resorts support the local communities in the dive area. Factors to consider to ensure your money is going to the right kind of operator. you don't want to put your money in a place that mistreats your beautiful dive area.
