For 2016 Earth Day, we are cleaning up under the Pier at the Tugboat Dive Site. An area very popular with the local fisherman, which unfortunately has led to a great build-up of old fishing line, fish cans and beer bottles amongst other unwanted debris. Dry volunteers always welcome to help clean up the beach / land in the area :)

Corso di Specialità PADI DIVE AGAINST DEBRIS Ogni anno, decine di migliaia di animali e uccelli marini muoiono per aver ingerito rifiuti marini, o esserne restati impigliati. I rifiuti marini danneggiano anche gli ambienti, rendendo le aree costiere inospitali e troppo costose da ripulire. MORE
