Xlendi clean-up on Project AWARE blog

On a visit to Gozo last month I participated in a clean-up dive in Xlendi, Gozo. Pictures from the dive recently appeared on the Project AWARE blog.

The dive was done in Xlendi bay with the staff of Moby Dives, the dive resort hosting me on a press trip of the islands.

Because of the ash cloud from Iceland I was stuck on Gozo for an extra four days, allowing time to take part in the clean-up dive on Dive for Earth Day on April 22.

Among the debris collected were boat batteries, tires, cans, bottles and other various plastic and metal objects.

I took some photographs of the clean-up activities, and they recently appeared on the Project AWARE blog.

Because of a flash problem the underwater images are not among my finest, but it is still nice to contribute to a good cause.

Other non-diving guestst were helping out by cleaning the beach and the surrounding area.

Karaoke and buffet

After the event Mark and Mariella Cassar of Moby Dives thanked all participants and contributors with a karaoke party and buffet the Captains Table bar and restaurant.
