Downbelow at Tunku Abdul Rahman Park, Kota Kinabalu has been on the net removal warpath against nets which have infiltrated the park yet again. Stuck on the coral reefs at a depth that required strategic thinking as the net removal team meticulously planned the assault.
Entangled on the reef in 20 metres of water, the team had to also contend with a bit of current, which meant higher air consumption and limited bottom time and had to make two dives in order to remove the net. Well done to everyone involved in this great effort!
