GIRT Scientific Diver Sponsors

The GIRT Scientific Diver Citizen Science Program offers sponsorship packages for people who are passionate about our underwater cultural heritage and wish to support a program that enables citizen scientists to document and protect that unique non-renewable heritage by way of sponsorship.

Why Sponsorship?

GIRT is a project of the not-for-profit research group Wreck Check Inc. designed to enable the public to ethically participate in maritime archaeology through a non-impact, conservation focussed scientific diving program. GIRT attracts a broad range of participants from multiple countries who offer their time and resources to assist in the documentation and protection of underwater cultural heritage in their country. To enable interested people to join GIRT and start actively participating in this citizen science project, your funding will support the delivery of necessary training to become a member and administration of the program and maintenance of this website.

Your organisation’s support for GIRT will yield important dividends in terms of empowering individuals to participate in a cultural heritage conservation focussed program, creating networks, facilitating sharing information about sites and their conditions and protecting our underwater cultural heritage.

Sponsorship packages have been designed to maximise your organisation’s exposure through GIRT training, our social media platform and this website. The following packages have been tailored to appeal to a wide variety of objectives. However if there are other ways in which your organisation would like to be involved, we welcome the opportunity to discuss these with you.

The sponsorship packages outlined below are based on cash sponsorship only.
