Koh Tao is a favorite travel destination in Thailand and Southeast Asia because it offers all the ingredients for a picturesque holiday; sandy beaches, warm weather, palm trees and scuba diving 365 days a year.
However one thing that you don’t include in the picture is rubbish sticking out of the sand and floating along the ocean’s surface. With the continuous flow of travelers on and off Koh Tao, it has become important that local businesses take on some of the responsibility for maintaining the natural beauty of this diving haven.
Today Davy Jones is organizing a beach clean up to do just that. As a PADI 5 Star IDC Center, Davy Jones works in alliance with Project AWARE and Ocean Conservancy in the fight for trash free seas.
The fight against debris is an important cause, not just because rubbish on the beach LOOKS bad, but because it IS bad. Trash in our seas affects both traveling and scuba diving by compromising the health of humans, wildlife and any other livelihoods that depend on healthy ocean.
Feel free to come join the Davy Jones team in our fight against debris this afternoon or anytime you find yourself on Koh Tao, Thailand. We will be meeting at DJL Pool Bar and carry our cause to Sariee Beach!
