Emperor helps Sharm come clean

Sharm El Sheikh held its third successful 'Operation Dive-sites Clean-up' in August.

Emperor Divers, along with other Sharm dive centres, joined in the clean up, organised by the South Sinai Association for Diving & Marine Activities.

Day One saw approximately 50 kg of solid waste removed from underwater, whilst on the second day of clean-up, Shark Reef /Yolanda and Jack Fish Alley, Ras Mohamed, gave up 15 bags of solid waste including fishing lines, plastic sheets, bottles, ropes, shoes and general debris.

The most peculiar item removed was an engine room door!

The diving community, as a whole, is always keen to help preserve the environment, which plays such a crucial role to preserving the beauty of the Red Sea.
