Our next AWARE kids class covered Kelp... a tricky one to explain to kids in Fiji, but the girls did a great job! We decided the best thing was to combine it with a beach clean up... so they reinforced the importance of the ocean ecosystem and our human affect on them - including our rubbish that ends up in the sea.

My husband and I opened a brand new dive centre Bubbles, in Gozo, Malta on 06 July 2011. Less than 2 weeks later we organised and participated in our first Dive Against Debris event.

Here on Koh Tao we are surrounded by beautiful coral reefs that are intrinsic to all the activities that take place on this small island. We at Eco Koh Tao and Crystal Dive took this opportunity to remind people about this important symbiosis by organizing an afternoon of eco activities.
What a fantastic dive we all had last week, raising some funds for Project AWARE whilst night diving.
The sea temp was reasonable, and the vizability was outstanding. Please check out the photos headed Project AWARE Night Dive May 2011, the eels featured there is the first one any of us have seen at this particular dive site, and what stunning creatures they are.
We run at least two night dives a year for Project AWARE, and always conduct a clean-up on the national clean-up day, and at least one more clean-up a year in addition.
