    Torture and molestation? Dosen't seem much worse than the guys on Discovery or NG that flips nurse and bull sharks on their back to "paralyse" them into a trance.

    But better leave all the sea creatures alone and watch them with your eyes only unless you plan on eating them

    Seems they make a habit out of molesting wildlife their main page shows a moray getting a grab. Instructors > Jamie Illistom PADI IDC Staff Instructor / TXR Instructor - Sydney Dive Academy - Learn to Dive Sydney

    Just a thought - perhaps PADI Asia would like to hear about their treatment of wildlife from concerned citizens

    ugh.. it just goes on and on.

    The gallery on their site has:
    -handling unexploded munitions
    -handling artifacts on a protected wreck (wearing a hlment while holding a machine gun on the Coolidge)
    -handling coral while taking a photo
    -harassing/handling a cuttle fish and a moray

    nice, real nice

    Not super cool behavior for sure. I don't think I'd say it is "horrific shark torture" though. I think you should focus on eradicating shark fishing tournaments, finning, and other serious violations. In my mind these guys are a bunch of retards who are setting a bad example for others and annoying a poor little shark for a while. People do this stuff to octopuses/octopi/octopopidi all the time and people think that's ok. My open water padi instructor actually fed an octopus to an eel during my second training dive. Can't say I really liked that one, on the other hand, shit dies all the time and that eel may have needed a snack.

    I've even spoken to someone who said it was ok to walk on reef every now and again. . How is it that humans care about dolphins, but not the tuna, cats and dogs, but now cows? There is a great amount of hypocracy and double standards out there, so it is not surprising that these guys think this is acceptable.

    How about Steve Irwin? How many animals did he "molest", yet because we know his intentions were good, it is ok? People respect and admire him because he lived like he died...with animals in his heart. Sorry, couldn't resist.

    Does it help he was doing this in a marine reserve? Jervis Bay Marine Park, about 90 minutes south of Sydney.

    Local are becoming quite aware of this store and their employee's habits, so fewer caring people will be darkening their doorway. All this, depsite their blocking people from FB and removing the offensive clips from their web site.

    cheers
