1st October, 2017 9:00-14:00 at Balluta Bay, Malta
As part of the #OurOcean conference being held in Malta, this official side event will seek to clean and survey below the surface at Balluta Bay. This event is a collaboration between Healthy Seas, Ghost Fishing, Żibel and Sharklab-Malta.
Anyone can join the snorkeling section of the clean-up which will occupy the main area in the bay whilst divers will tackle the deeper pats of the bay and surrounding areas.
The clean-up will run from 9:00 until 12:00 with the collecting of materials, followed by the sorting which will be done by 12:30-13:00. Afterwards, a 30 minute presentation will be given about waste and the impact on the marine environment.
