>The 2019 Sea Save Foundation (SSF) auction is now accepting bids. 2019 Sea Save Foundation (SSF) auction uses the monies raised during this auction to continue its critical mission.

SSF also works to stop unsustainable shark-finning and to curb plastic pollution.
>"Oceans do not recognize political boundaries, so we must work at the international level to most effectively protect them," Sea Save director Georgienne Bradley said. "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 vast 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.
