Davy Jones hates a messy locker - and so do we! We're diving against debris with 3 dives picking up trash along Sanghyang's southwest or east coast. You need your own scuba gear, 3 tanks and transportation to harbor. All costs shared. RSVP:Maria at firstname.lastname@example.org
It's our regular one-day dive trip combined with Coral Watch and underwater cleanup activities.
We will be specifically conducting observation on the development of crown of thornes around the Karang Lebar area of Pulau Semak Daun. If the presence of COTs increased significantly, we will remove them to avoid further expansion and threat of coral bleaching.
As usual, we will collect underwater debris in every dive. Let's make our underwater planet cleaner and join the Aware Scavenger Hunt game :)
