Earth Day Clean up


On April 24th Scuba Cat arranged an underwater clean up in conjunction with Earth day. We decided this year to clean Paradise Reef in Patong bay rather than Racha Yai as in previous years.

On the day itself we had 11 volunteer divers and 3 snorklers involved in the project. we used MV Scuba Adventure as our base for the day and set out to complete the two dives. The reef itself is small but has alot of marine life, but is unfortunately used by fishermen who leave lines and nets in the water.

After each dive the non diving team segregated rubbish and logged it onto the data sheet so the information could be sent to Project AWARE. The majority of the recovered items were lines, nets and fishing weights, the most unusual items were 2 toilets found lying on the reef.

After the dives were completed all the volunteers were invited back to the Scuba Cat bar for a free BBQ
