The Downbelow staff team along with our pro interns have removed their third discarded net of the month from a popular reef in the Tunku Abdul Rahman Park, Sabah. You can read about the first and second removal we did in the last few weeks.
This team will never give up the fight to keep our oceans clean but how we wish the illegal fishermen would understand if they continue dumping their nets into the ocean there will eventually be no fish left for them to catch let alone coral reef for marine-life to inhabit.
Big thanks to our interns for their assistance in removing this particularly large net which sat up in the water column in the most destructive way possible, trapping and killing numerous marine creatures.
Good news is it is not there any more.
