"Sasamat Lake has to be the dirties lake in BC" says Les Newman, owner of Langley Diving and PADI Course Director.  "We have been coming here every fall for years and this year we set out to have more people, bringing out more garbage, raising more money for Project AWARE than ever before."

Last year’s clean up in Zurrieq cleared up the seabed from a large amount of litter, fishing nets and tyres.  This year we are happy to note that the amount of everyday litter (cans, glass bottles, plastics, chains etc.) has really reduced.  Finally, the common person is respecting the sea.  However we are very disappointed with the fact that the main item that was hauled out of the sea was once again rubber Tyres. 


Taking Out the Trash

Coron, Palawan, Philippines - September 20, 2014 – The newly formed Coron Dive Professional Association with Neptune Dive Center took to the water to join in the International Coastal Clean Up Day.  The dive site chosen was Alcatraz, a small island surrounded by a nice coral reef slope.   A mooring buoy was also installed at the same time to stop dive boats from anchoring on the reef.
