Expert scuba divers dive deep into the sea to remove marine debris. Every month, the academy representatives will identify a spot like Lawson’s Bay Colony, Rushikonda, Mangamari Peta, and other beach belts, and help the trained scuba divers accomplish their mission.
Diving into the deep blue sea waters is sure to be the best way to escape the scorching heat. Perhaps, the excitement quotient is doubled if it combines an awareness campaign.
Those who joined the innovative concept of ‘Dive against debris @ Vizag to create a safe home for marine life’ through scuba diving felt the same.
On Sunday morning, the first batch of professional divers, numbering 10, ventured into the sea to bring out sacks of debris to the shore. With scuba cylinder and protective gear, the divers had fun exploring the marine world too.
It was a pleasant experience for N. Sridhar, a professional diver who has been part of many rescue operations for the past 15 years.
“By enjoying your favourite water sport, you can actually contribute to society and protect the aqua world, which is home for countless marine species,” he explains.
Introducing the new concept to the city divers, Dolphin Dive Academy, who has been part of Project Aware Foundation, a global organisation working for removal of marine debris, focuses on roping in as many certified divers as possible to continue the campaign.
“Each diver will set out for a 300-metre dive to collect the debris. Apart from this, to manage the debris and help the campaign continue as an ongoing venture, we have invited non-scuba divers to volunteer for the cause,” says Mohammad Sadiq, instructor of the academy.
Every month, the academy representatives will identify a spot like Lawson’s Bay Colony, Rushikonda, Mangamari Peta, and other beach belts, and help the trained scuba divers accomplish their mission.
