Clean Up the World with Innahura17 Sep 2023
The Prodivers team at Innahura Maldives joined millions of others across the globe on Saturday 16th September for the annual Clean Up the World event. From humble beginnings in Australia more than 30 years ago, Clean Up the World has grown in a worldwide event with a huge following of citizens wanting to contribute to a cleaner planet.
Here in the Maldives, the resorts are pristine, the reefs are beautiful and the marine life is incredible but, as with all areas of the world washed with ocean currents, debris can be washed ashore and caught on reefs, posing a risk to the fragile ecosystems. The Prodivers team collects any debris and and when it is seen during dives – every day is a clean up day when you love the ocean as much as we do!
To mark the global event, the staff team, along with 8 guests went snorkelling at Hudhufushe Etere to find and collect rubbish whilst another two of our team went diving to collect anything deeper on the reef. We went to a shallow reef in front of Maabinhura for more cleaning afterwards. The event was enjoyed by all who took part with everyone happy to be making a positive contribution to the health of the ocean.
A very big THANK YOU to all who joined with Clean Up the World events across the globe!
