Underwater Cleanup with Dive Friends Bonaire
July 27, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 7:00 pm AST
Check in for volunteers will begin at 9:30 AM at the North Pier, with a briefing for all volunteers at 10:00 AM.
Please don’t forget your certification cards (if they are not already on file with Dive Friends Bonaire). This cleanup will focus upon around the pier (as diving under the pier is strictly forbidden at this time due to safety); this area is a hot spot for fishing line and rubbish! Please make sure to have your BMP tags along with you, as is required.
Removing fishing line can be a tricky process, so please bring along your dive knife or shears
Those not diving can also assist with helping to count and log the items once they are removed from the water. This is done for the PADI Project AWARE Dive Against Debris. The counting and logging will be conducted at Yellow Submarine after the dive.
At 6:00 PM, Dive Friends will host a potluck BBQ for all volunteers at their Hamlet Oasis location. It’s potluck, so please bring a snack, side-dish or dessert to share and the main course and one beverage will be provided by Dive Friends.
