Dive against Debris July 2013



We had a very successful “Dive for Debris” on Sunday. 9 volunteer divers joined our staff and managed to remove 332kg of debris from the seafront in Port Vila, not a bad effort for 17 divers!

There were a lot of bottles, both glass and plastic, but the most unusual item we found was a printer/scanner. We also found a video recorder and a watch.

The team was fantastic at separating and counting the items so we could send off the data to Project Aware and it was done in quick time with everybody mucking in (please excuse the pun!!)

We then had a sausage sizzle as a fund-raiser for project aware and 5,000 vatu will be winging its way to Project Aware.

Thanks to all those who took part, see you next time. Our next Dive against Debris will be on the Clean up the world Day weekend 20-22nd September. Details will be posted soon…
