Calling all divers, snorkellers & beach combers, we need you! The ocean needs you!
Come along for a few hours one Spring sunday to collect debris from the ocean and from the beach before it ends up in the ocean!
Whether you can dive or not, we need your capable hands and willingness for a better planet.
Divers need a minimum of Open Water Certification to be able to participate. Please bring your own gear inc. tanks. A mesh bag is most ideal for collecting rubbish. Dive gloves are a must as part of your kit.
