It's been a while since PDP has had a guest post, the perfect opportunity presented itself when Diver Bill, who prefers catching crayfish to taking photos these days :) took part in the seventh annual Narc Dive Club Underwater and Land Cleanup 2017, this year held on Rottnest Island 18km off the coast of Fremantle. Observed by curious quokkas, over 100 divers and land helpers gathered on the beach to begin the clean-up created by planet earths most dangerous species.. man!
Associated with Sea Shepherd, Narc relies on sponsorship to organise the clean-up, with support coming from the ferry companies, businesses on and associated with Rottnest..
Last weekend's event was cut to one day due to bad weather and the haul of 790 kgs, the smallest weight haul ever, was a 'hats off to the Rottnest Island Authority, surrounding businesses and water users'. Meanwhile check out last year's haul.. 10.3 tonnes, that's right 10.3 tonnes pulled out from Fremantle Harbour, check the link.. you won't believe what was pulled up. Seriously what is wrong with people.. for goodness sake hire a trailer and take your rubbish to the tip! Littering is one of my all time pet hates grrrr! Merci beaucoup Bill for the photos and for participating in such a worthwhile event.. and for the super cute photo of the quokka :) Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe.. P.s. I can't even imagine just tossing rubbish into the environment like this can you!
