Big Blue held another dive against debris last Friday, which happened to be Unity day here in Vanuatu. The dive took place just off the beach at Ifira point outside the boat yard. 10 volunteer divers took part and we collected 380kg of rubbish from the sea. We found a lot of general household rubbish in the sea at Ifira point. In one hour 10 people collected 103 plastic bags, 209 plastic food wrappers, 5 nappies and 80 pieces of plastic.
It was a great day in Nova Scotia. Project Aware Dive against Debris was launched on the sunny shores of St Margret's Bay. Mill Cove Jetty was the first subject location of a dedicated team of Eco friendly divers who braved the cool North Atlantic water to help clean up underwater debris. A large amount of debris was collected and properly disposed of! Many thanks to all who participated!
Stayed tuned as this team of dive professionals ventures out each month throughout the cold Canadian winter for updates!!!
