Net Removal March 2012

The professional staff team and interns discovered and removed another very large gill net from Gaya Garden dive site.

After communication to and approval from the local authorities, the 10 strong team consisting of IDC candidates, Divemaster interns and the Downbelow staff team were assembled and briefed by PADI Course Director Richard.

They all travelled out to the site for a very hard, but ultimately successful mission.

During the removal the team worked side by side to carefully untangle the net and bring it to the surface, after fish and lobster were released unharmed.

Downbelow funds all such events internally and are 100% committed Project AWARE and marine conservation
