We are organsing a Dive Against Debris Specialty day to coincide with the inernational coastal clean up day. We will be doing 2 dives on Grand Anse Beach. We are also running Lionfish Eradicator coursrs that day to help with the invasive lionfish problem that we have here in Grenada. Non divers are welcome to join in with a beach clean up that is happening on the same day. Then we will all get together for a Lionfish BBQ.
Come join us to clenup the area around the Rompeolas and Mosquito Pier. Enjoy a morning with friends and family while you help the environment. After the clenup we will have a BBQ for all participants.
Rob Thompson is first and foremost, a conservationist. Intrigued by the marine world, he works fiercely to protect it.
At just three years old, Rob had his first glimpse under the sea. While on holiday in Croatia, his parents strapped a mask and snorkel onto his little face and that was that – he was off! He spent the remainder of his vacation submerged, exploring amongst the seaweed, corals and creatures of the underwater world, and has since continued to do so at every opportunity he’s been given.
Come help clean up our favorite local dive spot on Saturday, May 23! Call The Scuba Shop (480-705-927) to preregister as this is always a popular event and tanks do become scarce. We will be meeting at the dive location at 1:00 PM, briefing at 1:30 PM, and a dive window from about 1:45 to 3 PM.
When I was a kid, our school used to run annual cleanups. It was always really fun. Firstly, we got to miss classes - yippee! But secondly - and more importantly - we discussed how we can protect the environment, we designed posters with messages, and talked about actions we could take to stop littering. I felt like I could take on the world and make it a better place.
It's one of the largest marine debris removal efforts ever undertaken by Project AWARE volunteers as dive centres, businesses and locals rebuild the community after category 5 cyclone 'Pam' swept through the islands of Vanuatu on 13th March 2015.
With wind gusts in excess of 320km/hr and violent storm surges, the cyclone didn't just damage commercial and residential buildings, it also wrecked havoc under the waves with boats and yachts smashed against the seafloor.
To support Earth Day 2015 we would like to invite our guests to join an underwater cleanup in Marsa Nakari.
Two dives (one underwater cleanup and one fun dive)
When: Wednesday 22nd April
Where: Marsa Nakari
Close your eyes and imagine your idyllic scuba diving location. Most might envision sandy white beaches, palm trees blowing in the breeze, and a small dive boat anchored offshore in calm turquoise waters – right?
