According to Project Aware, “more than 250 million tons of plastic are estimated to make its way into our ocean by 2025.” On June 8th, World Oceans Day, the Amed team headed over to Jemeluk Bay to take part in a Dive Against Debris underwater clean-up. Several dive centers around the area worked together to pull loads of garbage from one of our beloved dive sites. Armed with mesh bags, our Amed Team, consisting of 3 instructors, 2 Divemaster Trainees, and 1 dive guide, paired up and collected trash. We came out with about 30 kgs of trash just among ourselves!
Jemeluk Bay is a site that we frequent, as it’s great for all levels. With its calm conditions, divers can enjoy a beautiful reef and stunning wall. You can find scorpion fish, nudis, eels and schools of Fusiliers, snapper and butterfly fish. It is filled with barrel sponges, sea fans and varieties of hard and soft corals. Jemeluk also boasts sightings of eagle rays and reef sharks. This is a site not to be missed, and now the area is a little cleaner for all! Come join us at one of our resorts for a Dive Against Debris and help us make a difference.
