The 25th Annual International Coastal Cleanup

September 23, 2010

In partnership with organizations and individuals across the globe, Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup engages people to remove trash and debris from the world’s beaches and waterways, identify the sources of debris, and change the behaviors that cause marine debris in the first place.

Phuket’s recreational dive community is gearing up for International Coastal Cleanup Day on Saturday, with two major cleanup activities planned.

The Thai Diving Association, Scuba Schools International and Sea Bees are holding a “big clean-up dive” off Phuket to help save local reefs.

The meeting point will be at the Anchor Inn restaurant in Chalong at 9am. Finger food will be served. The day trip is free of charge. Those interested in attending must bring their own equipment and reserve a place by contacting in advance. The organizers ask those interested in taking part to act quickly because space is limited.
