Diving around the Gili Islands is fantastic. To make your dives more joyable and to make you more aware about what garbage, rubbish can do with the underwater world, Oceans 5 organise every week beach and reef clean ups.
In the last few months we collected a lot of rubbish. And at his time we see more marinelife than before. A few days ago we spotted a white tip reef shark, a wonderpus and a few robust pipefish in the harbor. We are really happy that all our work and time results in a better reef and a broader awareness of reef conservation on the island.
But we are not there, there are many things that we individually can do! We can as divers create a good dive behavior, not touching and taking things away. We can improve our bouyancy. But even as a non diver you can help us to take some batteries we have back to the western world where they recycle them.
