ICC – International Coastal Clean-up



Many thanks to the participants/volunteers of the recently concluded Diveshoppe Family International Coastal Clean-up 2007 conducted in Anilao, Batangas last Saturday, September 8.

We would also like to thank Steve & Grace Chan for providing the tongs as well as Wowie & Carol Sy for providing the mesh sacks used for the clean-up; the efficient staff of Crystal Blue Resort for taking care of disposing the trash & COTS after; our very reliable boatmen Virgil and Polly for providing the support and HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Doc Orly, thank you for providing us with the sumptuous dinner and drinks πŸ™‚

The Beach clean-up was done by the Jun, Kas, Hakki Leah, Liam & Hashana; the Underwater Clean-up done by Dave, Charles, Charlea, Charmaine, Charrise, JB, Trisha, Jaddie and Anthony; and the COTS Clean-up done by Paz, Dood, Carol, Wowie, Arnel, Jicky, Steve, Grace, Elmer, Ali, Adel, John, Roy, Jonet, Orly and Gina.

We collected around 20 kilos of debris composed mostly of clothing, shoes and plastics; and harvested more than 1000 COTS from Koala and Eagle Point.

Again, thanks everyone for volunteering your time and effort in doing a worthy cause. Hope we can do it more often πŸ™‚

(There’s a carpet of COTS in front of Eagle Point Resort and we are planning a third COTS clean-up next weekend September 16)

  2. Intro dive is on Saturday, Sept 15. Clean up the following day, Sept 16.

  3. Albert , Len, & Jomi : We missed you last weekend. Would have been a blast. Felt like a reunion for the Palau 1 & 2 groups. Thumbs up for Crystal Blue Resort. Great service! I just love your fancy grill. Great choice of venue. Many, many, many thanks to Dave & Paz for making my B’day even more meaningful and worthwhile. At least I was given the chance to do my civic duty at the clean up. Abagan ang susunod na kabanata… Part II?
