My stay in Kenya with Buccaneer Diving is now coming to an end ... )-: but before I go I promised my Project AWARE friends I would collect petition signatures for the Give Sharks a Fighting Chance petition.
After spending some quality time with my new Schools to the Sea friends, Bruce, Mark and Sander from Buccaneer Diving in Kenya took me on a glass boat trip. I wasn't too keen on this type of trip but when they explained what it was I got all excited about it!
13 Dreaming dolphins declare War to garbage! We will hunt on fishing nets!We'll grant freedom for fish!!!Join us! Together we will help water to become pure. And water will tell to us "Thanks, people!".MORE
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.
