3rd Under Water Cleanup at Koh Chang was a succes

Was invited to join the 3rd Under Water Cleanup at Koh Chang and it was a succes. I joined White Sand Dive Centre, Don and his crew for a rather long day of diving/cleaning – really interesting and everybody was working hard!
At our first site, which wasnt a dive site, but rather a place where Thai fishermen dump all their shit…  nets, hoses, bottles, tires ect..  there we a LOT of junk, and we quickly got our bags filled up…  I went up and down 5 times on that dive…
The next one was regular dive site and we did find some trash there, but fortunately its was in small amounts.

Really a great thing to participate in and its great that Project A.W.A.R.E arrange and the Thai Government are sponsoring something like this!
Btw the 16-18 dive centres, their staff and guests did remove 5 ton of trash from the sea on the 18th and I’m sure they removed a lot more today.
