After discovering the alarming amount of marine debris we had in our beaches and dive sites in Puerto Rico, in 2002 Scuba Dogs created the notorious “Trash Fish” educational campaign and joined the “International Coastal Cleanup” in alliance with The Ocean Conservancy, the non-profit organization that leads the effort worldwide.  It quickly became the largest beach cleanup effort in the Island with thousands of volunteers participating every year.

In 2007, these and other environmental movements as the “Trash Fish Tournament” and “Underwater Press Conference” awareness campaign for the Month of Planet Earth were passed on to the Enrique Martí Coll Foundation, later named “Scuba Dogs Society”, which is now one of the largest and most influential grass-roots 501 (c)3 non-profit organizations in Puerto Rico.

This entity is inspired and created in memory of the late advertising man and humanist leader Enrique Martí Coll. Their mission is simple: “Humankind in perfect harmony with nature”. Kindly click here if you would like to join their efforts or donate.

The latest effort is the “Your Footprint in Harmony” guide highlighting the best practices to preserve our beaches and keep them clean and healthy.  Take a look at their instagram page!
