On Saturday the Bubbles Dive Centre team and local scuba divers completed a Dive Against Debris underwater survey in Marsalforn Bay. The event, which is part of an International Project AWARE campaign, involved trained divers not only removing underwater debris such as plastic bottles and fishing lines, but also the identification and documentation of everything collected underwater in a larger effort to prevent marine debris.

During my stay in Kenya I was very fortunate to meet fantastic children who were participating in the "Schools to the Sea" project, a 5 year education initiative aimed at enabling young people to experience the wonders of the marine environment for the first time in their lives. This great project is coordinated by Buccaneer Diving and partially funded by Project AWARE.
