Celebrating Halloween 2015 with a ‘Ghost Net’ removal was fitting – to show the macabre effects on the local marine environment in TARP from an illegally dumped fishing net!
Soon after the net was found on a dive site, a team of our dedicated and full time professionals and Go PRO interns assembled to remove it, and they did it in a single dive. Internship candidates Mike, Ian, Ashley and Katie valued the experience so much, for the positive contribution towards the Project AWARE movement, and a passion that divers share: marine conservation! It’s been more than 150 net removals in the past decade, all of which have been fully sponsored by our Downbelow operations with necessary dive logistics and the manpower of experienced professional divers, and our support for Sabah’s local environmental authorities to preserve and protect will continue indefinitely!
