South China Diving Club (SCDC) and Aberdeen Boat Club (ABC) have been signatory for the WWF Sea Without Litter Project since March 2017.
This is a one-year project (now extended to Sept 2018) with the following goals:
1. Raise awareness of litter and its impacts;
2. enlist marine users to following a litter prevention code of conduct;
2. encourage marine users to sort and recycle litter;
4. and inspire marine user groups to develop long-term litter reduction solutions
SCDC already took part in the AFCD Reef Check in October 2017. Part of the exercise was dedicated to underwater litter pick-up.
The next events will be: a WWF educational talk and a Beach Clean-up.
SCDC in partnership with ABC will conduct a beach clean-up departing from Aberdeen Boat Club.
Fine details will be sent later, but please pin the following dates in your calendar:
Thursday 22nd of March, Aberdeen Boat Club, WWF talk
Saturday 24th of March beach clean-up.
Boat spaces are limited therefore if you wish to participate to the beach clean-up day (24/03/18) please e-mail alex at firstname.lastname@example.org. No confirmation is necessary for the talk night.
