Our first reef cleanup of the year on 9 June 2018 set a new record. 155kg of marine trash, most of which were discarded glass bottles, was collected by 18 public divers and 6 S.E.A. Aquarium staff divers in the waters around Pulau Hantu Kechil.
Data on the trash collected was handed to Project AWARE’s flagship citizen-science programme Dive Against Debris®, which collates information on the distribution of marine litter around the globe.
A big thank you to all participants who joined us at this meaningful event. Every action counts in our effort to protect our ocean.
