September is Project AWARE’s month of action and to play our part we organised a Dive for Debris at Murrays Bay in Auckland’s North Shore.
Unfortunately there had been heavy rain in the days before which left the water visibility really bad, at approx. 1m. Still we had approx. 20 divers and shore support crew volunteering and cleaning up what we could find.
We removed approx. 30kg of rubbish from the beach and in the ocean, we were particularly pleased to remove several batteries which are incredibly bad for the ocean.
I would like to thank Project Jonah and Dolphin Underwater Club for joining us and helping with the clean-up.
