'Dive for Earth' Reef Clean Up Event in KK, Sabah with Borneo Dream

Post Number:#1  Postby Borneo Dream » Mon Feb 15, 2010 11:25 am

Project AWARE Dive for Earth Day (on 22nd April 2010) is an annual event aimed at raising awareness of the importance of conserving our underwater world and encouraging marine conservation activity.

As part of 'Dive for Earth Day' Borneo Dream will again be hosting a coral reef clean up event in Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah on the 24th April 2010. Here we will enjoy two dives cleaning up coral reefs (to be chosen by Sabah Parks) during a day out in TARP. Join this event and make a positive difference whilst diving  :)

Don't forget to check your buoyancy while cleaning up the reefs.  ;)

Have fun!

Hi, glad to see you are interested in making a difference whilst you dive  :)

We provide a full briefing at the start of our reef clean up events which includes dive practices and procedures we will follow during the clean up dives. This emphasizes watching bouyancy etc. whilst diving and collecting marine debris so as not to cause any damage to the reefs.

We've already got 5 MuW divers joining this event. Would love to meet more of you during this event too  ;)

Hi Shah,

That's great!

I think you've already emailed me today about joining up with your friend - right?

Will be great to meet more fellow KK Divers during our reef clean up event.

Safe diving in the meantime,  ;)

Less than 2 weeks to our scuba diving underwater clean up in TARP as part of Dive for Earth Day.

We have 4 places left so if your in KK on the 24th and want to join us for some diving and making the coral reefs a healthier environment in TARP then please PM me. We already have MuW Divers joining us for this event, so why not join them  ;)

We have four boats of Divers taking part - great to see so many divers coming together to make a positive difference whilst diving  :)

We also have support from Borneo Divers who are providing a boat to support our event. Great to see two Dive Operators coming together for such an important event - Borneo Dream and Borneo Divers, partners in conservation.

I'll post results and photos.

Happy diving!

'Dive for Earth' Reef Clean Up Event in KK, Sabah with Borneo Dream - RESULTS!!

Post Number:#8  Postby Borneo Dream » Sun Apr 25, 2010 4:04 pm

Hi!

We had a successful Reef Clean Up Event in Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park, Kota Kinabalu yesterday.

We had four boats of divers participate in the event (40 participants in total) and collected a total of 326kg of marine debris across four sites in Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park - Sapi House Reef & Jetty, Mamutik Jetty, Manukan House Reef and Sulug East Reef. This included 133kg of plastic bottles and 22kg of fishing net.

It was nice diving with 'new' and 'old' diving friends, helping with marine conservation and having fun! It was also great to have several MuW divers participating in this event.

Big thanks also to Sabah Parks, Marine Research Foundation, Borneo Divers and Sutera Marina for supporting our event and helping to make it bigger and better  B-)

Hope to see some of you at our next reef clean up event in KK later in 2010.
