Action Highlights

Here on Utila we are very proud of our island and the waters that surround it. We try and promote ecological awareness and environmental consideration in everyone who dives with us.

That is an effort that the whole island can, and does, get behind.

Our next AWARE kids class covered Kelp... a tricky one to explain to kids in Fiji, but the girls did a great job! We decided the best thing was to combine it with a beach clean up... so they reinforced the importance of the ocean ecosystem and our human affect on them - including our rubbish that ends up in the sea.

What a great day.

Huge Huge thanks to:  Captain Ali, Enrique, Lucy, Paul, Gavin, Chantel, William, Mark, Shaun, Leo.  Who all donated money to Project Aware and also gave up their day to remove the massive net from the wreck.

Honestly I did not think we would get it all done in one day.  But the guys worked so hard and had a lot of fun at the same time.  Lots of laughs from the moment we all got on the boat.

World Oceans Day is an opportunity every year to honour the world's ocean, celebrate the products the ocean provides such as seafood as well as marine life itself for aquariums, pets, and also a time to appreciate its own intrinsic value.

 

Here on Koh Tao we are surrounded by beautiful coral reefs that are intrinsic to all the activities that take place on this small island. We at Eco Koh Tao and Crystal Dive took this opportunity to remind people about this important symbiosis by organizing an afternoon of eco activities.
