UWE and Ocean Quest Dive Centre join with Project Aware to conduct the months fight against the silent killer. So, we were out at Belcarra park to conduct Project Aware Clean Up, dives. We had about 8 people join in to the day of hard work. Lise, Erin, Paul, May, Stephen and a special thanks to Mike for helping organize this fine day.
We found lots of various things in the bay, ranging from iPhones, to plastics, fishing line, bottles, and lost crab traps. Our dive was only about an hour in length and we were able to retrieve about 50 lbs worth of debris. We need to work toward a comon goal, and start to pay attention and clean up our oceans, and not from just getting together once or twice a year, but to simply pick up, clean up what ever it takes as we see it, not when things are piled so high, that we need to gather to do it.
So join in the fight, and do your own Project Aware Clean Up event!!
