Today on the 9th of July the Divemaster candidates of Scuba Center Asia organized the Dive Against Debris! Scuba Center Asia is a 100% AWARE Dive Resort, so very cool the Divemaster candidates contributed to the important goals.
Location on Lembongan reef at Lembongan island.
Armed with meshbags, liftbag, knives the teams went out to fight against the debris and pollution.
Luckily the divesites are very clean, but nonetheless we managed to clean up a total of 3.9 kg of debris. We found the usual suspects like plastic bottles, beer bottles, fishing lines and plastic fragments, but also snorkling gear, mouthpieces and a blackberry battery. The weirdest thing we found was a perfectly intact longdrink glass, as if someone enjoyed a nice drink underwater. Now one of our dive instructors will use that at his home! ;-)
We are very proud to have cleaned up the ocean today, making diving even more awesome as it is already.
Dive Against Debris! YEAH!
