Downbelow & Hyatt Kota Kinabalu Conservation Day April 2014

We all had a great day with the team from the Hyatt Regency Kinabalu who joined forces with Dive Downbelow Marine & Wildlife Adventures for a Project AWARE Foundation beach & snorkel ocean cleanup & mangrove planting day, we also raised some money for the AWARE Foundation :)

The day started with a welcome briefing & presentation by PADI Platinum CD Richard on the importance of mangroves along with why & how local marine debris must be reduced.

We proceeded on to clean the beaches & rocky areas of trash then stopped for a delicious lunch in the Downbelow Dive centre. The afternoon session was spent planting mangrove trees with the assistance of Sabah Parks.

We also found time to get a few very cool pro pictures for the Hyatt photo competition (#InAHyattWorld) in the hope the team from Hyatt KK can win a 5k donation for local Sabah charities :)

Huge thanks to all who took part in this successful conservation awareness fund raising day.
