Bunaken Coral Reef Cleanup

Whilst staying on Bunaken Island, North Sulawesi I hooked up with Two Fish divers and spent the Project Aware International Cleanup Day clearing the port area of rubbish.We hauled out 2 dive boat loads of tyres, paint cans, old trousers, toothbrushes, a window frame, cigarette packets, plastic bags, glass bottles and lots of other rubbish. Unfortunately the island has no recycling facilities so it ends up either being burnt or buried.

Diving in Komodo with dragons

At the end of 2009 I spent 4 months diving around Indonesia, including Sumatra, Sulawesi, Bali, Lombok and Flores. I trained as a PADI Divemaster in the Komodo National Park with Reefseekers, an exceptional dive company based on Angel Island, near Labuanbajo in Flores. Every day on the Reefseekers boat one of the divemasters would give a marine briefing and mine was, of course, about sea slugs and nudibranchs.
