This Halloween, divers will be gearing up for a clean-up dive at the famous Tangalooma Jetty! A dive with a difference... all divers will be diving in FANCY DRESS- as their favourite marine animal!
The legendary Jetty is where a family of inshore bottlenose dolphins visit every night, to be given by guests their favourite food- fish! This is closely monitored by our on-island Marine Education Centre, who provide in depth coverage of the dolpin feed programme throughout. As fishing is a popular activity on the Jetty, fishing line is the main debris we will be retrieving, but as a busy arrival and departure point for thousands of guests each week we will be sure to find something interesting!
To raise funds, we will be holding a breakfast barbie for guests and staff arriving and departing. Around this we also plan to display the rubbish we collect during the clean up dive, as well as having posters/brochures and other info about marine debris and how we can help
So if your near Brisbane, hop on the ferry this thursday and help us out!!
