Action Highlights

So, weekends  have passed...

Dive Against Debris # 6 and 7 for the World Whale and Dolphin Day  is completed!    

Unfortunately participate in actions could only a small part of our group. Together with my buddy we have made two dives in hot water of a reservoir in the Desnogorsk city.

What a great day.

Huge Huge thanks to:  Captain Ali, Enrique, Lucy, Paul, Gavin, Chantel, William, Mark, Shaun, Leo.  Who all donated money to Project Aware and also gave up their day to remove the massive net from the wreck.

Honestly I did not think we would get it all done in one day.  But the guys worked so hard and had a lot of fun at the same time.  Lots of laughs from the moment we all got on the boat.

Following the success of their Fantastic Fish art contest last year, Camel Dive Club decided to hold a Colouring Competition for this year’s World Ocean Day.

World Oceans Day has been celebrated globally every June 8 since its original proposal in 1992 by Canada at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro.

World Oceans Day is an opportunity every year to honour the world's ocean, celebrate the products the ocean provides such as seafood as well as marine life itself for aquariums, pets, and also a time to appreciate its own intrinsic value.

 

Here on Koh Tao we are surrounded by beautiful coral reefs that are intrinsic to all the activities that take place on this small island. We at Eco Koh Tao and Crystal Dive took this opportunity to remind people about this important symbiosis by organizing an afternoon of eco activities.

What a fantastic dive we all had last week, raising some funds for Project AWARE whilst night diving.

 

The sea temp was reasonable, and the vizability was outstanding.  Please check out the photos headed Project AWARE Night Dive May 2011, the eels featured there is the first one any of us have seen at this particular dive site, and what stunning creatures they are.

 

We run at least two night dives a year for Project AWARE, and always conduct a clean-up on the national clean-up day, and at least one more clean-up a year in addition.

Tokoriki's Earth Day Clean up, which due to various circumstances was delayed until the end of May, was a beach clean of Monuriki Island, with Yanuya Island school kids to assist.  Lots of fun was had by all and less rubbish than usual was collected which was great to see.

Many more volunteers helped on land. Continuing the celebrations into the evening, Chad Scott, Jen Matthews and Eco Koh Tao’s Nathan Cook conducted a marine ecology and reef restoration talk before the attention turned to some great locally made films raising awareness at this important time for our planet.
