Nunu And The Net


Three day days ago PADI Instructor Ahmed ''Nunu'' Abd El Wahed discovered a huge, discarded fishing net while guiding a dive at the Eel Garden dive site in Dahab, Egypt.  Nunu gathered a team of divers together and over the course of two dives managed to bring the net up to the surface. Unfortunately many fish were caught in the net and died along with extensive damage to the coral. On a happier note Nunu and the team managed to rescue a turtle that was entangled in the net, and were also rewarded for their efforts when a whale shark arrived at the dive site!! Fantastic job by Nunu and everyone involved and a huge thank you from everyone else!
