Due to the fact that our reefs are in an MPA and we have no rivers closer than 80Km from the reefs we have little or no debris on our reefs. We will be doing a beach cleanup especially for floting plastic debris that washes up on the beach.
Calypso Dive and Adventure at uShaka Marine World are organising a dive against debris day for the 9th of June for World Ocean Day (June 8th). We will be having 4 dives to the most debris impacted sites on the No.1 and Blood reef system. We will provide mesh bags, gloves, etc. We are also co-ordinating a beach cleanup and snorkeling clean-up of Vetchi's pier for the non-diving members of the community. Please come join us so we can help protect and restore our precious reefs. MORE
Local PADI dive centre Adventure’s Edge in conjunction with Oceans Research and Reef Divers will Dive against Debris on Tuesday, 01 May 2012 at Santos Reef, and will also be doing a shore based cleanup for the non divers, as part of Adventure’s Edge, Oceans Research and Reef Divers commitment to protecting the ocean. Our trained divers not only remove underwater debris such as plastic bags, bottles, fishing line, and tyres , but also identify and document everything they see underwater in a larger effort to prevent marine debris.
