Weldon Wade founded Bermuda Ocean Explorers in 2011 with a mission to connect people and organizations to aid conservation, education and ocean research. The avid diver actively encourages locals to take up SCUBA, freediving and snorkeling, and through his involvement in marine cleanups like his “Shore Savers” programme he has recently been recognized by Bermuda National Trust and Keep Bermuda Beautiful with environmental awards for promoting ocean conservation. He shared his love of the ocean on a world stage in 2014 as a speaker at TEDxBermuda and was the recipient of the Bermudian Magazine’s 2016 Best of Bermuda Unsung Hero Award. As stated on his website: “In the end we will conserve only what we love,” Wade’s mission is to get all Bermudians to love the ocean that surrounds us and protect it for all future generations.
In 2016, after 5 years, Weldon has changed the name of Bermuda Ocean Explorers to Guardians of the Reef.
