Eugenie Clark was a pioneering marine biologist (1922–2015). Affectionately known as the “Shark Lady,” Clark conducted many important studies that provided fascinating insights into shark biology and worked tirelessly to change public perception about sharks.
Women’s Dive Day was created to encourage women to get into the hobby of scuba diving. The goal is to celebrate the connection to each other and the ocean, both online and in person. This is a day to share the passion and adventure of the underwater world through scuba diving.
The Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) created this day in 2015. In the first five years since its creation, there have been over 4,0000 events held on this holiday. In addition to exploring and taking in the beauty of the underwater sea, many projects have been undertaken on this day. They include planting coral, beach and underwater clean-up projects, educational programs and seminars, fundraisers for breast cancer, and much more.
