As it is World Oceans Day on June 8th we will be encouraging all of our divers to take clean up bags out diving with them so that whilst they are enjoying the beautiful reefs around Nusa Lembongan, Ceningan and Penida they can help in keeping them clean and healthy! Of course when they return any trash collected will be counted and recorded and sent in to the lovely guys at Project AWARE who do so much to help keep our oceans protected! If anyone would like to join us for diving then please let us know - firstname.lastname@example.org
With ever increasing threats to our ocean planet, working globally and acting locally has never been so important.
You can empower your local ocean community to take conservation action to a whole new level of change. With measured results, on the ground and under the water action, your Ocean Action Project brings us one step closer to a clean, healthy and abundant ocean planet by addressing the root causes of marine debris or shark and ray protection issues.
Our ocean is under siege. From everyday trash like plastic bags, food wrappers and drink bottles, to larger items like car batteries, kitchen appliances and fishing nets, our debris is entering the sea at an alarming rate. Our ocean has become a dumping ground.
Downbelow Marine and Wildlife Adventures, Malaysia enlisted the help of 30 university students for their Dive For Earth Day event. The students from University of Glamorgan, UK were visiting Gaya Island as part of a research project.
Jaco from Downbelow, “They happily agreed to pitch in and help remove trash from the very environment they had been researching the previous week.” To end the day dive shop donated a brand new dive computer and the students dug deep to raise $400 for Project AWARE.
