Scuba Diving is always fun, but when you're helping the environment by cleaning up litter at the same time as enjoying the oceans underwater beauty, diving is made even more enjoyable and fulfilling.
Some of the Adreno crew recently visited the beautiful Tangalooma shipwrecks on the west coast of Moreton island just east of Brisbane with the intention of cleaning up some of the rubbish that accumulates there. Unfortunately, the areas beauty attracts plenty of tourists to the area which unfortunately leads to junk ending up in the water, so it’s always good to have clean ups like this that keep our ecosystems in good nick.
As you can see, the team made a fantastic effort throughout the day accumulating a few bulging bags of trash scattered across the ocean floor in both the channel and around the wrecks.
But it wasn’t all hard work. The team were subject to some spectacular underwater scenery as you would expect in such an area, with an array of species making appearances. Wobbegong sharks, schools of adolescent Barracuda and a littering of corals were just some of the pleasant sights of the day.
These sorts of events are by no means strictly limited to our own team.
