Do you all remember the Project AWARE Homework project undertaken by one of our Junior Divers - Thomas Frieland?.. no then refresh your memories by having a look at our blog on the subject here
Rubbish is bad for us and the Environment
As you are probably aware Dive Rutland are a 100% AWARE dive centre AND its Project AWARE week 14th - 22nd September so we are donning our fins to make a stand against debris and in conjunction with Anglian Water we are going to grab a mesh bags to remove any debris we can find in the water. Every piece of trash we remove will be documented and the results submitted to Project AWARE.
What are you going to do?
In affiliation with Anglian Water we are running a Dive Against Debris event at Rutland , so come and join us on Sunday 15th and take part in our inaugural Dive Against Debris. You need to book with Tracey to receive location and timings for this event.
This is not restricted to diving, we are inviting our past and current Seal Team members to join us and will include a land-based project as well as in water and although we are not diving an ocean I wonder how many of the top 10 items of rubbish we will find and collate.
Have you noticed we have added to our training offering the Project AWARE Dive Against Debris Speciality. If you wish to find out more then have a look at our website
The Dive Against Debris Speciality is available as part of this event to Club Members for £60.00 and counts as one of your specialities towards your Master Scuba Diver Certification
In the end we will conserve only what we love; we will love only what we understand; and we will understand only what we are taught. ~ Baba Dioum, 1968
