Tom Crisp and the Cold Caves of Canada
Tom started cave diving in 2010 and has since worked closely with local communities to locate and explore caves all over the world. Tom has been involved with severable notable projects including Project Middle Earth to Blue Creek Resurgence (with the GUE NZ community), working with the Wet Mules at the Pearce Resurgence, and if you've heard of it in the news lately - Castleguard Cave in Banff, AB which was recently globally recognized as a Key Biodiversity Area. He lives in Canada and works with the Alberta Speleological Society exploring caves of the Rocky Mountains and sharing his exploration stories.
There were two videos in this presentation that did not play but are very interesting. Here are the links to the videos:
Ghost Diving USA: Jim Babor on "Nothing but Nets"
We had Jim Babor join us to share the incredible work Ghost Diving USA is doing to combat the damage being done by abandoned fishing gear worldwide. Ghost Diving USA is a registered charity, working with volunteer scientists, technical divers and community members to locate, survey, and - when safe to do so - remove these abandoned fishing nets.
