Come and join our Dive Against Debris on March 3 to 4, 2012. It's the end of rainy season in Western Indonesia region and as usual, the Thousand Islands area of Jakarta will be packed of marine debris.
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 :)
