South Beach

Blue skies, clean beach and blue water - an idyllic scene

But lurking beneath the clean blue waters is lots of trash;

Underwater Trash
Aluminium Cans

Aluminium soft drink cans in abundance....

Playing cards?!?

Playing Card

Old fish traps-now banned in the Marine Park

.......lots of beer cans thrown from boats......

Beer Can
Crisp packet

.....crisp packets and more blown from the beach.... all starts to clog up the reef and cause damage to the corals....

Plastic Bags
Plastic Cups

...and this reef strewn with plastic cups from tourist boats looks unsightly

The Marine Park boat brings us extra bags as there is much to clean...

Marine Park helpers
Distributing bags

...everyone diving is allocated several trash bags....

...the clean up team enters the water...

The team enters the water
Diver cleaning

....on reaching the seabed work starts immediately....

....underwater photography is forgotten as there is much to clean....

Divers with bags
Divers return

....heavily laden divers begin to return to the boat, staff help retrieving the bags....

....the dive platform soon fills up with lots of trash....

Rubbish on swim deck
More trash

...and still the trash keeps coming and coming...

...the divers are finally helped back aboard...
