Dive Friends Bonaire has been hosting our world famous quarterly underwater clean-up for over 10 years. This past Saturday, January 23, 2016 we’re proud to say that had the biggest turnout EVER with 135 volunteer divers!  We also had additional on-land support teams of the Dive Friends Bonaire crew to help divers in and out of the water and our non-diving team to sort and count the estimated 1 ton of garbage collected!

In the end of 2015 I organized a fundraising to help SAVE our Sharks and the result is fantastic! In total an amount of 360 $ was raised! 

The fundraising had 2 different parts:

1. 1 Day event on location where people could donate on location through buying second hand clothes/scuba gear, play funny games etc.

2. Donation online through myoceanchallenge.

I want to thank everyone who supported the fundraising to help SAVE our Sharks! A new year has begun, so stay tuned for the next Shark AWARE fundraising to come.

Today 6 of us met at a local fishing location in Crystal River, FL called the Mullet Hole. It was very cold this morning compared to the weather we've been having lately.

We split into 3 buddy teams and spread out around the fishing site. Today we mostly found soda bottles and aluminum cans. I expected to see quite a bit more fishing debris. The bottom was covered with an algea that when disturbed silted the water so we had to be careful about disturbing the bottom.
