Yes we did it again!! 

You may remember our 'Dive Against Debris' Clean Up on 30th September 2012. That was such a huge success and propelled Go Eco Phuket into the eyes of the public. It was a major step in making the Thai authorities notice Go Eco Phuket and was therefore a massive step forward in making us closer to our goals of protecting Phuket and nearby Islands' coast lines.

On 13th August 2013, in honour of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit's 81st birthday, Go Eco Phuket and Phuket's Dive Community, supported by the Department of Marine & Coastal Resources and local government bodies joined together in a mass effort to raise the World's awareness of the importance of keeping Phuket's marine and coastal ecosystems clean and debris-free. 

A total of 4.356kg of debris was collected which was a lot less than in 2012 but we can only see this as a good thing. There is less debris in the Ocean! Go Eco Phuket is working to protect Phuket.

Special thanks goes to all those dive centres and individual volunteers that helped make this happen again in 2013. Particularly we would like to mention the sponsors that helped make this happen by providing resources, venues for press conferences and cash to support our cause:

Special thanks also to long-standing supporters of Go Eco Phuket, PHUKET GAZETTE and also to Phuket News for following our developments. You can see their after-event write-ups here:-
