Alberto Marti is the owner of Scuba Dogs, a PADI 5-Star Dive Center operating in Puerto Rico since 2000, and creator of the non-profit environmental organization Scuba Dogs Society.  Alberto also formed the Pez Basura Campaign, part of the leading International Coastal Cleanup movement.  A water safety expects, an environmentalist, a sports fan, a fish ad corals fan, and a diver, our speaker alerted the audience of the extent humanity has done with our precious water supply.  The Annual Coastal Cleanup reveals tons of harmful trash carelessly tossed into our ocean.  Plastic items, broken glass, and all types of unwanted debris are harvested and responsibly disposed of.  This careless disregard for our environment also affects the living creatures who call the sea their home. There is no doubt that the fish we consume can be ingesting some of this alien material as food.  Father of 2, grandfather of 3, Alberto was inspired by his father, noted advertising/renaissance man, Enrique Marti Coll.  Presently, having the Escambron area declared a Federal Marine Reserve is high on his projects list.
