Published

on

As pioneers in sustainable marine tourism, Dive Ninja Expeditions announces a new PADI divemaster internship in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico unlike any other in the industry. Encompassing conservation, skill proficiency, and professional experience, this 4-6 week program is designed for those looking to expand their careers in this unconventional industry and make a positive impact for our oceans.

Dive Ninja Expeditions has built a reputation on sharing the beauty of Mexico’s abundant oceans while fighting to protect them through full circle ecotourism & conservation projects. Over the years, they have partnered with Sea Shepherd, Nakawe Project, and Empty The Tanks, just to name a few. Now, they are extending their resources to others wanting to share their passion for sustainability through this exclusive divemaster internship.

“Becoming a PADI dive professional has allowed me to share the underwater world with countless people from all over and be a part of a community that shares a common goal: fighting for the future of our oceans. Now, we have a chance to empower other dive professionals with the best tools to make an even greater impact in their future careers using the platform we have created here at Dive Ninjas.”

                                                                        —Donna, Team Ninja Instructor

Based on years of experience building ecotours, such as their citizen-science striped marlin and mobula ray expeditions, they have created conservation workshops for dive pros where divemaster candidates will learn everything from working with local scientists to designing their own eco tours. In total, they have built 12 specialized modules for the new curriculum that are then intertwined with the PADI Divemaster course to create their Ninja PADI Divemaster program. These cover a range of topics — from shark biology & conservation to learning scuba equipment maintenance.  During their divemaster internship, candidates are also mentored by the team in all aspects of the dive business, not just the diving. The aim is to help them become a greater asset when they start working in the industry.

The course is also tailored to each individuals’ specific goals and diving aspirations with options to add on technical diving, photography, and other skills & certifications. The opportunities are endless with Dive Ninja Expeditions under the leadership of pro-photographer & conservationist, Jay Clue. Introduction to photo and video services, resume building, working in remote areas, marine conservation, and other skills that build a solid foundation for a well-rounded dive professional. A divemaster that has the tools to make a positive impact wherever their career may take them.

Peli proud to support COVID-19 vaccine distribution

Published

on

We know Peli from its popular camera cases, but from discovery to distribution, Peli’s temperature-controlled packaging is now delivering COVID-19 vaccines all over Europe and the Middle East

With the pandemic recovery just underway, COVID-19 vaccines and therapies are rapidly becoming available for use and they must be safely distributed worldwide, within their required temperature range. Peli’s BioThermal™ division is providing temperature-controlled packaging to meet this critical moment, protecting these crucial payloads.

Peli’s innovative cold chain packaging has been trusted for nearly 20 years by pharmaceutical manufacturers to safely ship their life-saving products around the world. To meet the current challenge, they have adapted their existing products to provide deep frozen temperatures when required for the newly developed life sciences materials. Current and new offerings will ensure the cold chain is maintained throughout the vaccine or therapy’s journey, maximising efficacy and patient health.

“We know that pharmaceutical companies are in all phases of the development process for vaccines and therapeutics and working tirelessly to bring safe and effective drug products to market quickly,” said Greg Wheatley, Vice President of Worldwide New Product Development and Engineering at Peli BioThermal. “Our engineering team matched this urgency to ensure they have the correct temperature-controlled packaging to meet them where they’re at in drug development for the pandemic recovery, from discovery to distribution.”

Peli BioThermal’s deep frozen products use phase change material (PCM) and dry ice systems to provide frozen payload protection with durations from 72 hours to 144+ hours. Payload capacities range from 1 to 96 litres for parcel shippers and 140 to 1,686 litres for pallet shippers.

New deep-frozen solutions are ideal for short-term vaccine storage, redirect courier transport of vaccines from freezer farm hubs to immunisation locations and daily vaccine replenishment to remote and rural areas.

Peli BioThermal temperature-controlled packaging is currently being used to distribute COVID-19 vaccines and therapeutics, either directly or through global transportation providers, in Denmark, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Sweden, and the UK as well as in Kuwait and Saudi Arabia in the Middle East, with more countries set to join the list as the pandemic recovery process rolls out.
