Roots Expedition May 2018 • Day #5
by Mark Moore | 22nd May 2018
Last night we had an excellent briefing about our Project Aware’s Dive Against Debris. We learnt about the location where all the expedition members and those of us on the Pros’ Course would dive with the intention of clearing fishing line and plastics on an area of reef.
Due to the numbers on the programme we would work as two groups with one group diving first and the other group later. We travelled to the town of El Quseir just down the road from our base at Roots Red Sea and arrived at a jetty where we were divided into two boats, the first a RIB and the second a small hard bottomed boat. The boats delivered us to the area of reef we were to clear and we rolled backwards in the sea.
