Underwater Cleanup with Dive Friends Bonaire
June 8 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm AST
Check-in for volunteers will begin at 9:30 AM at the South Pier (with the North Pier as a backup), with a briefing for all volunteers at 9:30 AM and all divers are to be out of the water no later than 11:00 AM. Please don’t forget your certification card (if it is not already on file at Dive Friends Bonaire). Tanks are provided by Dive Friends Bonaire, but remember to bring all the rest of your diving equipment. We’ll be cleaning up around the pier it is a hot spot for fishing line and rubbish! Please make sure to have your BMP tags along with you, as is required. Removing any fishing line can be a tricky process, so please bring along your dive knife or shears. After the dive, we’ll be sorting the trash into 4-5 rubbish bins provided by Selibon, the island’s waste management company. Targeted trash is general rubbish, fishing line, and larger pieces of trash.
