RUTGERS SCUBA will join ALLIANCE FOR A LIVING OCEAN for the 2nd ANNUAL DELVING THE BAY event at the Brant Beach Yacht Club (tentative location) on Long Beach Island.
Alliance for a Living Ocean believes in protecting our waterways from the raindrop to the ocean. On May 17th, we will be coordinating a bay clean-up with scuba divers, paddle boarders, kayakers and possibly boaters. ALO's mission is to learn more about the bay ecosystem while cleaning up debris. Divers will be entering the water to observe the condition of the bay floor, clean up debris and report back on their findings to Project AWARE Dive Against Debris. The participants on top of the water will be heading out for a scenic trip to some of our important bay islands where they will get to observe the conditions of the ecosystems and clean up debris. Winds, tides and currents cause debris to be moved around in our bay areas and often is caught on bay islands which are difficult to access in order to clean up. This is a unique opportunity to learn more about our ecosystems on the western side of the barrier island while making a difference for the environment.
