Clean up day with the Thai navy

Our annual clean up day happened on the 8th of August and was a complete success, along with the thai navy, the Thai government and a lot of volunteers and friends, sail rocks boat heading round to Koh Ma And Mae Haad, on board we had 32 divers all ready for the task in hand and with the guidance of the Thai navy who were on board as well, we commenced our clean up. Mae haad is one of our favourite dive sites due to the fact it has a beautiful fringing coral reef which unfortunately over the past 4 years has deteriorated somewhat due to overfishing and bad snorkelling practices, thankfully with the combined efforts of many dive schools and local governments it is nearly back to its former glory. During the clean up we were lucky enough to have see a huge cobia, a jenkins whip tail ray and a hawksbill turtle. Another positive note was the fact that last year and the year before we undertook a clam relocation project and we are very happy to say that the giant clam population is now very healthy. All in all a very successful day, lots of hard work and plenty of fun had by all.
