“Project Baseline’s last day of summer 2014 diving operations with Global Brownies Logisitics (BGL) submarines and Global Underwater Explorer (GUE) divers. In six months we visited seven countries documenting baseline conditions of reefs, fish, corals and algae for universities, collecting samples for scientific studies, discovering and documenting shipwrecks, filming never seen before reefs and wrecks and recovering 2000+ year old artifacts that will be national treasures in museums.
BGL did 200+ sub dives, including two different subs in two different locations in one day and eight dives in one day in another. Max depth over 800ft. I ran out of fingers and toes to count the number of GUE divers and the countries they came from around the globe to contribute to Project Baseline. Divers did 150+ dives, recovery work at 375′, a mile long cave penetration to 310′ and a deepest dive of 420′. There are NO organizations IN THE WORLD that can produce these results!! Together BGL, Project Baseline a GUE initiative, have raised global awareness of marine conditions and provided a platform for local divers to document and monitor, not only the places currently established, but also your favorite local dive spots.
Be a part of this global enterprise by making a contribution at http://projectbaseline.org/contribute. We thank BGL for the planning and individual sponsers for making this dream a reality.”
