    Bali Dream Divers Tulamben just had another roaring success recently on July 1st with their 2nd Project AWARE Dive Against Debris event to collect underwater trash from their adopted dive site, USAT Liberty Shipwreck in Tulamben!

    Every month, our dive operation sponsors certified divers to volunteer their efforts to contribute to the local marine environment in Tulamben. Volunteers must be certified divers and 'Fit to Dive' to participate, and will receive all dive equipment needed for the dive, including scuba cylinder and weights. Only the Tulamben dive area tax will need to be covered by volunteers, which is $3 (USD); porter fee is available if volunteers wish/need their gear taken to the entry/exit point of the USAT Liberty Shipwreck dive site. However, our dive centre is only 100 metres away.
    Each buddy team will have a mesh bag to collect trash during the dive, and a thorough dive briefing will be explained by our manager (also participating), and every recreational diver will be under the direct care and supervision of our in-house professional divers during their dive.

    Anyone that's interested can contact our professional dive team directly at our e-mail: balidreamdivers@gmail.com
    Feel free to come by our dive centre if you're already on Bali or in the Tulamben area and get to know our staff team and our PADI Instructors who will be organising the event.

    Making a positive difference to the health of our seas and oceans is a wonderful experience to share, and we really want to make as big a positive difference as we can with many volunteers getting involved - so don't hesitate to get in touch with your questions!

    I wish more ops would do this, or something like this. Even just being prepared to pick up trash on the surface when we come up would be helpful if everyone did it.
