8th annual Padi Project Aware Clean Up day for The Dive Centre

8th annual Padi Project Aware Clean Up day  for The Dive Centre magnifier

Clean Up the World 2010
Underwater and Coastal Clean Up

     Date:Saturday, September 25th     Time: 9am-12pm
Venue: Avarua Harbour - next to Trader Jack's

It is the 8th year for The Dive Centre to organize this annual clean up day. This year again the National Envirnment Service, the Whale Reserarch Centre and the Ministry of Marine Resources are back on board to coordinate this annual event.  This is the Year of Biodiversity, therefore the organisations are working together towards a much larger campaign to encourage as many people as possible toa tak action and help protect our marine bioversity, the reef and animals, by cleaning them up of all the man-made waste that enters the harbour from the two streams as well as users of the wharf.

Avarua Harbour was chosen again because this is where the annual dive clean ups have been held in recent years. Two streams empty into the harbour wich brings down all kinds of rubbish whch end up on the bottom of the harbour and in and around the reef. Litter trom town is also blown out onto the shore and into the lagoon. Avarua Harbour is also a precreational place for local canoeists, divers, fishermen and a great sight for those that frequent Trader Jacks and Raro Fried Chicken.
The Clean up the World campaign is about getting out there in the community and helping to clean up public places.
We need as many volunteers as possible. Certified Divers for the harbour and reef clean-up and volunteers for the coastal and stream clean-up. Take a couple of hours to celebrate whit us this event and take action to keep our town, our island, our lagoon and our reefs clean and healthy.
Certified divers please register with The Dive Centre - Sabine Ph: 20238
All gear will be provided free of charge
Onshore volunteers please register with National Environment Service: Deyna Ph: 21256

or just come down on the day and sign up!

looking forward to seeing you there!       E kura mana to tatou Aorangi!

Please note that the Avarua Harbour will be closed for boat traffic from 8.00am - 12.00 noon.
