Mangrove Kayak Clean Up Day for Ocean Day Activities with Al Mahara Diving Center

WOD2017

[Abu Dhabi, UAE; 27/05/2017] – In celebration of World Oceans Day 2017, Al Mahara Diving Center is hosting mangrove kayak clean up on 8th June 2017 at Eastern Mangrove from 4pm-5;30pm. With the theme this year, “Our Oceans, Our Future,” Al Mahara Diving Center is joining with hundreds of organizations and millions of individuals from around the world who will recognize this special day for ocean awareness and action. Mangrove kayak clean up will focus on reducing plastic waste in the coastal waterways of Abu Dhabi. World Oceans Day is officially recognized by the United Nations, and has become an annual celebration on 8 June as well as a call for ocean conservation action throughout the year. Promoted and coordinated by The Ocean Project since 2002, in partnership with a network of diverse organizations, the effort has expanded to over 100 countries. World Oceans Day brings together aquariums, zoos, museums, schools and universities, businesses, organizations and other groups, including divers, surfers, sailors, communities of faith, governments, the maritime industry and the tourism and recreational industry.

Mangrove Kayak Clean Up event is getting the community of concerned citizens and sea lovers to get on a kayak in the mangroves and pick up any marine debris around our beautiful Eastern Mangrove Lagoon area.

"Reducing marine debris within our coastal waterways is important to keep our water safe and healthy and promote great outdoor activities for our community and families." - Kathleen Russell, owner and PADI Course Director at Al Mahara Diving Center.
