XTC Dive Center Annual International Beach Clean Up
XTC Dive Center in conjunction with the local school kids, CONANP (Comision Nacional de Areas Naturales Protegidas), and visiting XTC guests, will be holding a Beach Clean Up on Wednesday September the 12th at 9am at our local pier. XTC Dive Center in support of the International Beach Clean Up Day (Sept 15 & 16), decided to hold it´s own special event.
Calling all divers, snorkellers & beach combers, we need you! The ocean needs you!
Come along for a few hours one Spring sunday to collect debris from the ocean and from the beach before it ends up in the ocean!
Whether you can dive or not, we need your capable hands and willingness for a better planet.
Divers need a minimum of Open Water Certification to be able to participate. Please bring your own gear inc. tanks. A mesh bag is most ideal for collecting rubbish. Dive gloves are a must as part of your kit.
In 2009, World Ocean Day (8th June) was declared official by the United Nations; it was, however, originally proposed at the Rio Earth Summit in 1992. Given that this is also the year in which Centro Sub Campi Flegrei was founded, we will be having an extremely eventful programme throughout the year; the weekend of 9th & 10th June 2012 will be dedicated to environmental activities to mark both World Ocean Day and World Environment Day (5th June).
