Aware - Slovenian Dive Against Debris 2018
Where Conservation Meets Adventure – Join us – Divers and Non-Divers needed to help save our Oceans.
Marine debris is not only unsightly, it’s dangerous to sea life, hazardous to human health, and costly to our economies. Marine animals become entangled in debris, and even mistake it for food - often with fatal results. Divers, swimmers and beach goers can be directly harmed by encounters with marine debris or its toxins.
Every year we group together and do our part to protect the ocean we love. In recent years our focus has been the Marina and the swimming area in Bernardin.Making the areas cleaner and safer for the local community who value and enjoy these spaces.
WHERE: Marina and Bernardin Hotel
Recently we were contacted by a fellow diver and biologist who was disgusted at the amount of polution in front of the hotel. This worried call has not gone unheard and this year we will move our focus and include this area, to clean up our beautiful coast and protect the aquatic life we share it with.
