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).
Para el mes de Septiembre estamos programando el tercer Clean Up en Cabo Corrites - Choco, con el auspicio del Hotel Turqui Paradise, los días 22 y 23 un grupo de amantes de la protección del medio ambiente participaremos de la limpieza de fondos y de playas.
La idea es recibir la participación de la comunidad de las poblaciones de Aruzí y Partado, sobre todo de los jovenes quienes nos ayudadan en la recolección de basura de sus playas.
With the introduction of Dive Against Debris, the act of removing debris underwater and logging data about that debris has become a Project AWARE focus. Sarah Wormald, the Global Scavenger Hunt champion, is one AWARE diver taking the cleanup commitment to the next level.
Thursday - I have had an excellent day with Darren and Katy from Sub-Mission Dive Centre today. They put me in charge of filling cylinders, sorting the equipment logistics and loading the van! Phew! Then, this afternoon, I was also put to work serving customers. I must admit I was a hit with Sub-Mission's regular divers and customers, especially the ladies.
I was still exhausted from my attempt to get to Kenya so I slept most of the day. Unfortunately though I was suffering from nightmares, which were a mix of plastic oceans and sharks with no fins! In fact the nightmares were so vivid that I awoke with a start and hid amongst the foliage to hide from the shark fishermen…but it turned out to be Darren from Sub-Mission! After all of these horrid dreams though I was feeling worried about my sister, Finley. So Katy let me surf the internet to find out how she was.
