We all know the garbage disposal strategies in third world countries around the globe. Change is slowly on the way. Aside from public education on how to deal with garbage, a political change is necessary to provide the needed infrastructure for efficient garbage disposal. Project AWARE is working hard to achieve this global goal. Sound statistics are often the basis for such political discussions. You as a diver can help collecting data on the garbage impact in the oceans through Dive Against Debris!
Scuba Junkie, a 100% AWARE partner based in Sabah, Malaysia, hosted its third annual Turtle Week from 22nd to 28th May, a week of presentations, talks and environmental activities aimed at promoting turtle conservation in Sabah and worldwide.
Thank you to all our faithful volunteers for participating in another successful cleanup at Mosquito Pier!
We collected 21lbs of monofilament, hooks and sinkers. That's A LOT of fishing line! Unfortunately, it was just the tip of the ice berg. So, please join us again next month and every month, so we can make a real dent.
On the 22nd April 2016, the community of Koh Tao participated in the biggest Earth Day celebration to date. Not only was the intention to protect and preserve Koh Tao, but it also formed a platform to raise funds for a well known community member and conservationist, Chad Scott.
I am very excited for all the effort and passion the whole team of Rainbow Reef is putting our initiatives of project aware, and this earth day we wanted to make a video for the world can see how excited we are. We have the obligation to care and protect what we like "the ocean"
What to do on a sunny morning when the dive shop is quiet, all the chores are done and the temporary management want to go for a dive with a difference? Why not Dive Against Debris? That's what we did at Nautilus Watersports on Monday 18th April and it was a great way to spend the day.
