Falmouth Clean Up with NARC

Updated: Aug 8, 2019

28/29th June 19 - What a cracking weekend spent diving with ‘Neptune’s Army of Rubbish Cleaners’ from Pembrokeshire. 😁

Diving from Falmouth at the Stanwood, Epsilon, Rick Island Bridge and again the Epsilon. Plenty of fishing related litter to clear.

3 dumpy bags full were retrieved but unfortunately having spent a long time in the sea, most of it is not suitable for recycling as it’s either contaminated or mixed with non recyclable materials but its out of the sea, thanks to this amazing bunch of divers. Great teamwork and huge thanks to Mark and Ruth at Atlantic Scuba with their boat Moonshadow. Good work everyone !

We are a group of volunteer Marine Conservationists who refuse to stand by, whilst our seas turn into uninhabitable dumping grounds​.

“The global marine debris problem is one of the greatest threats our planet has ever encountered. Divers are in a unique position to assist in tackling this threat. Industrial practices and legislation need to change, so our fight is a big one. We believe, by working together to raise awareness, that we are in a position to take on what appeared at first to be; the impossible”
