Dive Into Earth Day 2010 a Coordinated Effort by Treasure Island Limited and Subsurface Fiji
Activities included Beach and Underwater Clean-up. 'Dive for Earth Day 2010' is a global event organized by the Project AWARE Foundation, a non profit organization conserving underwater environments through education, advocacy and action, they also organize hands on environmental activities, lead public awareness and education programmes and provide support for conservation efforts worldwide.
The AWARE Kids program included coral viewing, fish feeding and beach clean-up. This interesting event allowed the children some time to race along the beach looking for washed up trash and the sorting of trash had them commenting on the large number of cigarette butts found under beach chairs as well as old shoes and pipes which were listed as most unusual items collected.
The afternoon session included a number of certified divers, and dive instructors working together to help clean up the outer reef, as well as interested snorklers who gladly donned masks and fins to help the cause.
A Big Vinaka Vakalevu To All Those who helped out.
