Woo hoo!! Day 3 of my pledge to collect trashy marine treasure was a great success. Back out on the House Reef and today's haul was: 16 plastic drinks bottles, 1 plastic shampoo bottle, 16 plastic food pots (yoghurt pots), 1 flip flop (I still don't understand the amount of flip flops out there!), 1 piece of nylon rope and a badminton shuttlecock?????? Job done for the day. Back out with my collection bag tomorrow - one person can make a difference - in just 3 days that's a lot of plastic.......

We always include a Project AWARE conservation element in our school group programs; it's one of the ways we give back to the environment and make the right impression on impressionable minds.

Do you hate underwater trash as much as we do? Plastic bottles strewn across the ocean floor, nets choking coral reefs, discarded fishing line entangling marine creatures... Together, we’re fighting back against marine debris – the ocean’s silent killer. And when we fight for the ocean, we like to fight on scuba. Join us in the battle and dive in this September for Debris Month of Action.

What is Debris Month of Action? It’s you, your best dive buddies, your favorite dive spot and a mesh bag, helping to clean the ocean and telling the world what you’ve found.
