The weather was a bit rough in the morning, but nothing to prevent us from going out diving. No, the weather was not our main cause of concern, it was an entirely different issue, a quite unnatural and manmade one, and it was the debris covering the beautiful historic wreck we were going to dive at.

On the 22nd and 23rd of November, we did 2 dives at Pulau Hantu, to check the stretch of reef for its suitability for further Dive Against Debris actions in 2016.

The first dive was conducted in a southwards direction along the reef whilst the second was in a northwards direction to cover the majority of the extent of the reef.

11月19日下午,我们前往Batu Ringgit进行了这次垃圾打捞活动。

一共有20名热心的爱好者参与了这次行动。在这里衷心地感谢大家。

我们这次打捞的垃圾大多是都是鱼线、渔网以及塑料纸和塑料口袋,以及拖鞋之类的生活和渔业垃圾。

而让我们欣喜的是,这一带的海洋在这一两年基本上没有太多的增加的垃圾。当地人看见我们去捡垃圾都很欢迎,而不是漠视。这对我们来说,是最大的鼓舞。
