Bahamas Girl Visits GlobalSubDive and Project Baseline
Sacha Kalis who is also known as Bahamas Girl recently visiting with GlobalSubDive and Project Baseline and was invited to first hand visit the underwater realm off the coast of Fort Lauderdale.
Sacha is a 16 year old teen who grew up and still lives in Bahamas and who has become a famous model for some remarkable and beautiful underwater photography that her mother, Elena Kalis is the master artist of.
The experience for Sacha Kalis was in stark contrast to the waters she’s used to from the Bahamas. The impression on Sacha actually made her a bit sad.
As she stated the reefs are so degraded, by algae bloom and sand sediments mostly as direct results of human activities.
Sacha also noted the eco system is not as rich and diverse here in the Fort Lauderdale waters as those she is accustomed to in the Bahamas.
Reefs used to be rich and beautiful all over the world, as Sacha noted, but now suffers more and more from degradation from human impact, a message that she wants her 600,000 plus followers to take note of.
Founder and CEO of GlobalSubDive, Robert Carmichael, piloted the Triton submarine, affectionately named Nemo, and although Sacha is used to being under water this certainly was her longest dive yet, and also her driest dive too.
Robert Carmichael founded GlobalSubDive in order to establish the perfect exploration platform for scientists, explorers and adventurers alike to go beyond the surface so we can learn more about the underwater realm.
Water covers about two-thirds of the entire earth, and yet we know less about the underwater realm than we do of much of space, which makes for an interesting conversation which we will leave for another time.
With much focus lately on space exploration and space travel, it seems exploration of the underwater realm has lost the race in terms of awareness and focus placed on the topic.
Project Baseline and efforts of GlobalSubDive is hoping to balance this focus a bit, pointing out an obvious and urgent need for bringing better balance and order to our nature and to curb the vast negative effects of human impact.
To learn more about Project Baseline which is a non-profit organization with an amazing support of volunteer groups from all around the world, monitoring dive sites to establish a baseline of the state of health of the waters and to monitor any evolvement over time, please visit http://www.projectbaseline.org
GlobalSubDive utilizes a 146 foot exploration vessel, Baseline Explorer, with two Triton submarines along with all the dive equipment and support equipment that any exploration or research endeavor could wish for.
The setup provides for a perfect platform for all oceanic exploration and endeavors and is even supported by some of the world’s most professional divers.
Baseline Explorer and its equipment and professional personnel can be chartered for a variety of assignments all of the world. For more information, please contact GlobalSubDive at firstname.lastname@example.org
