Land and Underwater Clean ups

Land and Underwater Clean ups

Scuba diving is a great way to see the wonders of the oceans, however, it is filled with discarded and unwanted trash that ends up floating around in the water table. For decades the oceans have been the ultimate dumping ground; some waters of the world have more plastic in them than they do fish.

If you fell in love with the oceans from your very first day, why not join us on one of our monthly underwater cleanups? It's a free dive to any certified diver that has been diving within the past 6 months.  It's a great way to meet new divers and help the oceans by removing trash from the sea, one dive at a time.

Why are land cleanups important?

It is important to conduct land cleanups because it can be one of the easiest and most effective ways to prevent trash from entering the oceans in the first place.  From roadside drainage to tides cleaning the beaches, we must be careful of how we discard our trash. On any given day, there can be approximately 5.4 trillion pieces of rubbish swirling around in the oceans, the majority of that coming from some kind of land runoff.

Here at Big Blue Conservation, we organize beach clean-ups every Tuesday evening when the air is cooler and the sun is setting. Plus we join in with quarterly community road cleanups to help clean the streets of Koh Tao.
