Beginning Wednesday, April 1st thru Thursday, April 23rd 2015 Pura Vida Divers is hosting an Endangered Species Photo Contest. Whether you are a scuba diver, snorkeler or beach goer, everyone is welcome to join. This is a FREE event!

Photo Contest Rules and Prizes:

To help raise awareness for the endangered species that live in our community, all photos must be taken in Florida and be submitted via email to allison@puravidadivers.com before Thursday, April 23rd 2015 at midnight.

High resolution images are not required.  Please send images suitable for the web only.   Feel free to leave your water mark on your image.  Don’t have a water mark?  No worries, all photographers will be given photo credit for images submitted.

We ask that each photographer identify the subject in their submitted image and submit a maximum of two images.

All photos will be posted to our Endangered Species Photo Contest album on Facebook Friday, April 24th at 8am for a vote.  The photo with the most votes as of Sunday, April 26th at midnight will be our winning photo and will become our Facebook cover photo for the remainder of April.  The photographer of the winning image will receive a $75 PVD Gift Card.  We will also award an Honorable Mention $25 PVD Gift Card for second place.

Please refer to the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species or FWC’s Florida Endangered and Threatened Species List for a complete list of endangered plants and animals found in Florida.

If you need help locating or identifying creatures, please contact Pura Vida Divers.  We have Private Dive Guides available for Blue Heron Bridge and Ocean diving.  Our staff is a wealth of fishy knowledge and many are active REEF Fish Counters.

Don’t forget about our REEF Fish Count Dives on Sunday afternoons.  Andrea is happy to help you find and identify endangered species that call our reefs home.

We are also offering the PADI Digital Underwater Photography Specialty Course as the April PADI Specialty of the Month.  For more information on this course and our FREE gift with class purchase, please visit: https://www.puravidadivers.com/2015-april-padi-specialty-of-the-month-digital-underwater-photographer
