Here at Brisbane Dive Academy we run regular cleanup activities and join in during Cleanup Australia Day and International Cleanup Day.

Downunder in Oz we love to hold barbeques so whenever our divers have done a good cleanup dive we spark the BBQ ready for action. We charge our divers a gold coin donation and over the past year have raised over $600 for Project AWARE.

“We charge AU$60 to dive on the cleanup day and AU$30 is donated to Project AWARE for every person who attended. It’s as easy as that!” says Mick Wheatley.

 Downbelow at Tunku Abdul Rahman Park, Kota Kinabalu has been on the net removal warpath against nets which have infiltrated the park yet again. Stuck on the coral reefs at a depth that required strategic thinking as the net removal team meticulously planned the assault.

Entangled on the reef in 20 metres of water, the team had to also contend with a bit of current, which meant higher air consumption and limited bottom time and had to make two dives in order to remove the net. Well done to everyone involved in this great effort!

Downbelow Marine and Wildlife Adventures, Malaysia is at it again! This time removing two nets just 10 days apart. On 5th January the team successfully removed an 80 metre illegal fishing net. This net was one of the worst the team had ever encountered. Not only was it smothering delicate corals but large amounts were sitting up in midwater catching all kinds of marine life. The divers removed the net and also managed to save many creatures such as crabs and stonefish.
