The Board of Directos for the Turks & Caicos Reef Fund is comprised of watersport operators, educators and other interested parties from throughout the TCI. They volunteer their time to help guide the management of the TCRF in their fund-raising and environmental program processes.
Don Stark, chairman & Founder, Producer, Director and Videographer
Since becoming a certified diver in 1988, Mr. Stark’s passion for the sport and for the beauty of the underwater world has guided him toward a career capitalizing on both these interests. His dive travels have allowed him to view and appreciate the diverse diving experiences offered by a wide variety of locales throughout the Caribbean, Florida, Hawaii, Bahamas, U.S. East Coast and the Pacific Coast of North America from Vancouver Island to San Diego. As an underwater videographer since 1992, Mr. Stark has focused his work on capturing the unique characteristics and beauty of each dive locale, with much of that effort today focused on the marine environment of the Turks and Caicos Islands.
In addition to being an experienced diver and underwater videographer, Mr. Stark is an award-winning producer, director and editor. Since founding ScubaVision Productions he has won ten awards for both his underwater and above water productions. He is also a PADI certified Open Water Scuba Instructor.
