A group of volunteers have delved beneath the surface of Hobart’s waterfront this afternoon this week in a bid to help protect and conserve the marine environment.
Dive coordinator Andrew Bain talks with Dave about the event now in its 10th year.
The annual Marine Debris Clean-Up and Dive always secures a major haul of debris including witches hats, seats, shopping trolleys, bikes and wallets.
Around 30 divers, as well 15 support volunteers, will attended the clean-up, between Princes Wharf and Elizabeth St Pier.
The Hobart event is one of a series of annual clean-ups held across the State.As part of the clean-ups, debris is classified and recorded for State and national databases and international records.
This year’s event was supported by Veolia and The Dive Shop.
