Environmental Freediving

Freediving is one of the most environmentally friendly ways to explore the underwater world. Consequently, many freedivers have strong interests in environmental issues and actively use their freediving skills to improve the underwater environment.

CAFA members have participated in a number of environmental projects over the years in cooperation with other organizations. These projects provide a great deal of satisfaction to the participants and help to promote awareness and acceptance of freediving among the general diving community.

The photo links below show some of the environmental projects that Canadian freedivers have participated in over the past couple of years.
