Like much of Egypt - and many other developing nations - Dahab has a rubbish problem.
During the Dahab Bedouin Festival, we are collecting locations of 'rubbish hot spots' (around collection bins, etc). On 18 April - designated Environmental Day for the Festival, and also very near to Earth Day, we'll tackle as many hot spots as we can.
The clean-up will focus on the residential area Assalah in particular, where local people are facing an extreme rubbish problem.
“Today we changed the mindset of 13 Divemasters and 4 Instructors and I know they will be AWARE for the rest of their lives,” said Jens Nielsen Ban’s PADI Staff instructor. It was a memorable day for Jens and fellow instructor Simon from Ban's Diving Resort, Koh Tao, Thailand who taught their first AWARE Shark Conservation course.

Be green on the greenest day of the year, St. Patricks day! Come join us to help combat trash both in and out of the ocean. This beach is one of the dirtiest beaches in the Monterey Bay area so there should be plenty of unique "treasure" to be discovered. This event will count towards earning your PADI AWARE specialty, which also counts towards the Master Diver certification. All are welcome, non divers can participate topside and earn a certificate of participation! If you are interested, please contact Chris or Ginny at Any Water Sports!
In 2009, World Ocean Day (8th June) was declared official by the United Nations; it was, however, originally proposed at the Rio Earth Summit in 1992. Given that this is also the year in which Centro Sub Campi Flegrei was founded, we will be having an extremely eventful programme throughout the year; the weekend of 9th & 10th June 2012 will be dedicated to environmental activities to mark both World Ocean Day and World Environment Day (5th June).
