Saturday 25th of September was International Cleanup day which was a huge success! We started with the beach and mangrove area around the Two Fish resort, and later that afternoon we took 30 volunteers (staff & guests) to the pier in Bunaken and joined several other dive centres from around the island in a mass cleanup.
We had a surface crew that consisted of a number of snorkelers, some of which were from a neighbouring resort who wanted to do their bit, and a dive crew doing the area from 14m up.
We collected everything from plastic packaging, bottles, building materials, clothing to diapers and tin cans.
It was a great team effort and we would like to thank everyone for taking part and doing their bit for our ocean. All the data has now been collected and submitted to Project Aware and we are pleased to announce that after weighing all the rubbish that was collected, we managed to collect 628kg!
