Divers Save the Seas!
Fellow Crew Member!
Addie and Tiffer and we want you to know something very important:
While kids may not always pick up their socks (sorry Mom!), they
certainly can help Save the Seas! And one great way to Save the
Seas is to learn to scuba dive.
you don't have to be an adult. (You only have to be 10 for Open
Water certification). And no, you don't have to be the world's
greatest swimmer. (You just have to be comfortable in the water
and able to swim a reasonable distance).
other words, YOU can be a scuba diver! Really! Let's get started
follow along with the script from Episode Four ("10-Year-Old
Divers Save the Seas!") and click the links you see. Each
will give you more information and show you exactly what we learned
as we followed our younger sister through her Open Water certification
you have any more questions, please, please, please email us (firstname.lastname@example.org

Hey, don’t forget me!
I won’t. (Addie dunks Tiffer.) To show you how
much fun learning to scuba dive is, we’re going to follow
our younger sister to her scuba lessons. (To learn more about

Allie is 10 years old and that’s exactly the age you can
learn to dive.
My teachers are making this so easy. Today we’re learning
how to talk underwater.
Given how much Allie talks, this is a very important skill. See
that sign? In scuba talk that means everything is OK. Great job
Allie has completed her pool work in Tucson and now we’re
back in the Sea of Cortez for her open water check out dive. Let’s
see how she’s doing.
Looks like she’s doing great. That means she’s now
ready to help protect the oceans.
That’s why we want you to learn to dive, too. Scuba divers
see firsthand what’s happening to the Sea of Cortez and
divers fight very hard to protect what they love.
"People protect what
they love. All of you love the sea. Help us protect her."
