" To promote understanding of the economic and ecological benefits of Artificial Reefs in Eastern North Carolina, in order to raise money for the sinking of new Shipwrecks for the enjoyment of SCUBA Divers and Sports Fisherman along the Crystal Coast of North Carolina."
A great friend of ECARA and Discovery Diving, Nick Abbott, has graciously created these beautiful paintings which are now for sale, with the majority of the proceeds (everything but shipping costs) going to ECARA.
The Darwin painting will be sold for $90, the Hog Fish is $65 and the Shark painting is $50.
Call (252) 728-2265 if you're interested in purchasing, or donating to ECARA!
By 2020 we're hoping to have all of the funds needed to sink a large vessel for our next artificial reef.
