Clean up dive #1 – Clifton Garden
August 12 @ 8:30 am - 11:00 pm
URG is participating in Project AWARE’s Adopt A Dive Site initiative. As part of this initiative, we will be doing monthly cleanups at Clifton Garden to record trends in debris accumulation and ultimately reduce the amount of harmful debris found underwater.
The general idea is to repeatedly survey the same area using the Dive Against Debris methodology, collect any harmful debris we find (e.g., plastics), categorise our findings, and report the results to Project AWARE so they can be included in the Dive Against Debris Database. These results may then be used for academic research or to inform policy decisions.
Meet at Clifton Garden Carpark (Morella Rd) at 8:30am. Some gloves and bags will be available, but please also bring your own if you can. A raincoat may also be handy in case it rains while we categorise the debris.
