Equipment news
Release of Mikron from Aqualung
Have you always wnated a small and light regulator that you could so easily slip into your luggage? Aqualung has released the Mikron which has the advantage of being the smallest and lightest weight regulator in the line. The fact that the regulator is so compact does not affect its performance. Its balanced first and second stages produce extraordinary breathing performance.

The Mikron is compact and light giving a unique diving experience.
The hose is very flexible and weighs less than 5 oz., which provides comfort and excellent packability.
You can have the Mikron in two colors including the new black/pink that matches the ladies segment.

Marine conservation 
How can you personally and your entourage contribute effectively to marine conseravtion?
You could join special organised events or organize your own special event. Have a few  friends come over and explore the coast, or a local body of water should you live inland.  Then pledge and commit to doing more for our shared world ocean.

What better way to relax and to experience the wonders of nature is there than by immersing yourself in its sights, sounds and smells. It does not matter where you live, there are many opportunities to get outdoors and enjoy the natural world. You could take a trip to the beach, take a walk or a hike or even have a picnic at the park, take a stroll by the river, lake, or stream or go cycling. 
We are all part of the life; as you enjoy the outdoors think about your connections to the places you are exploring, and absorb and enjoy their special qualities. Let the experience give you new energy and help you commit to living as sustainably as possible.

You do not have to do huge things, small collective efforts will move big mountains when we join hands. Start today.
