NAUIGreenDiver Initiative

Every year across the world, NAUI member-driven projects continue to grow in number and in significance. However, the potential that GDI comprises to support these programs has not been fully realized.


For the past five years, the Green Diver Initiative has helped sponsor a select number of NAUI member-driven projects around the globe, including:

• The annual Trashy Divers Contest, in partnership with the Roddenberry Adventures, to provide administrative service, support and prizes for debris removal from aquatic environments around the world.
• The Hong Kong Recreational & Technical Diving Group’s “International Underwater Cleanup Day.” NAUI’s role was also to coordinate the efforts of 70 volunteer divers in five teams.
• The Sarasota Bay to sponsor the “Sister Keys Cleanup,” which removes over a ton of trash and debris each year from the islands and mangrove skirts.
• The Colorado River Foundation for the “Lake Travis Underwater & Shoreline Cleanup.” Over 1,000 volunteers removed 3.6 tons of trash and debris from the lake and shoreline.


The NAUI Green Diver Initiative Inc., is a U.S. registered 501 (c) (3) non-profit that relies on the generous support of donors to realize its mission.

Formed in 2010 by the National Association of Underwater Instructors (NAUI Worldwide), in association with the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund (DWCF), the Green Diver Initiative (GDI) empowers individuals to promote global change through initiatives meant to preserve and conserve the planet's waterways. GDI is open to everyone, divers and non-divers alike, with the common goal of taking action to protect the environment.
