The Mission of SPSNL is to advance the awareness, documentation, and stewardship of shipwrecks throughout our province.
The Objectives of SPSNL are to:
promote the study, documentation, and appreciation of Newfoundland & Labrador shipwrecks, and training in the historical, archaeological and diving methods needed to achieve this goal;
promote the preservation of provincial shipwrecks through diver education and wreck protection activities; and
promote a public awareness of shipwrecks and the importance of our nautical heritage to the history of Newfoundland & Labrador, in partnership with local communities and cultural heritage organizations.
All SPSNL initiatives are founded on values of fellowship, inclusion, and respect.
