Together, we're battling back against ocean trash and showing the world what's found beneath the waves. Explore the map to find the types and amounts of debris items divers are reporting from more than 60 countries and help make change.
Thanks to Andrea Vallintotto and Jennifer along with DMT's from Bans and Sunshine Divers we had a successful underwater clean up at Lighthouse Bay Dive Site on Koh Tao -Thailand.
The main items collected included approx. 240 plastic water bottles along with some paint brushes and oil filters from boat engines. Collectively the weight was approx. 40 kg.
An excellent effort from all invovled to keep our waters clean around Koh Tao.
We had a great morning on Sunday and got quite a good haul considering it was a first time for us and we only had approximately 0.5-1m vis. There wasn’t as much debris as I would have expected, especially closer into the wharf but we did come across a bottle pyramid quite far off shore which must be the distance a fisherman can throw a bottle from the wharf, and this will be a point of interest for future dives.
