Scuba Lodge Dive Center makes Pietermaai Seaclean at Avila Resort and Beau Rivage

Project AwareWILLEMSTAD - Last Sunday, on March 4, 2018, the team at Scuba Lodge Dive Center Pietermaai underwent a major cleaning action. Together with a small group of volunteers, the sea was stripped of waste at the Penstraat. The underwater cleaning action was organized in collaboration with Project AWARE. The Project AWARE Foundation is a growing movement by and for divers who are committed to the protection of the oceans.

For the cleaning dive, which started around two o'clock in the afternoon, divers were provided with gloves, scissors and mesh bags in which the dirt could be collected.

Daan Drechsel, Manager of Scuba Lodge Dive Center Pietermaai calls the cleaning action more than successful; "It is a pity that it is necessary, but if you ever dive into Curaçao, you have noticed that there is a lot of garbage on the bottom, since 2017 Scuba Lodge has been organizing an underwater cleaning action every first Sunday of the month. Last weekend we went diving in the sea at the Avila Beach Resort and Beau Rivage Apartments We have been able to clean up a lot of waste, from shoes to bottles and from fishing nets to a toy robot. "

Scuba Lodge thanks all volunteers who have participated in the cleaning. The diving school will, in 2018, organize a cleaning dive monthly, just like last year.
