Dive for Debris 2012

On Sunday 19th February we held DIVE FOR DEBRIS in partnership with Project AWARE.
Divers came and joined us on a clean up operation at one of our local diving sites, Manly Cove, inbetween Manly Wharf and Oceanworld.
As well as divers two representatives from The Two Hands project came down to help with cleaning up the beach and surrounding area.

In total 1140 individual items of rubbish were collected, heres just a snippet of those items -
82 plastic bags
29 balloons
238 food wrappers
10 plastic toys
and 1 condom!!

We would just like to say a massive thank you to everyone who came down and took part!
You were all part of a growing movement of scuba divers in 180 countries collecting and reporting the underwater trash you found! We all have to work together to protect and preserve our beautiful oceans!

More pictures from the day and more can be found on our facebook page.
