Our Values

Our work is inspired by the core values that have been with CI since day one: passion, respect, integrity, optimism, and courage. As we work toward securing a healthy planet for today and for generations to come, we are guided by five fundamental values. CI

We are passionate about nature and cherish the diversity of life from the sea bottoms to the mountain peaks.

We respect and trust each other, and we embrace the diversity of our cultures, talents, and experiences.

We make every decision with integrity and are accountable for the choices we make.

We are optimistic that life on Earth can be preserved and that with our partners we will witness unprecedented successes in conservation.

We have the courage to take bold action in the face of naysayers and critics, persevere through challenging times, and pursue our vision tirelessly and with enthusiasm.

The Best Shark Dive in the World!
  • Cristina and Caribbean Reefie!
    Just saw this. This is why I totally respect Cristina. This is also why when it comes to those interactions, I do give her a pass: like I've said before, this appears to be completely voluntary insofar as the Sharks appear to actively seek her out  for a friendly rub, and this irrespective of any food rewards - and again, no, this is not the dreaded tonic immobility but something else

This is a PSA we ran on local television. Although this is not his voice, it was entirely Rusi's brain
  • Squid giving Birth - amazing Video!
    Behold! Story here, article here.
