Beach clean-up at Atmosphere Philippines

We regularly conduct beach cleans here at Atmosphere. As 15th – 22nd September was Project AWARE week and Saturday 21st was International Coastal Clean-up Day, we stepped things up a gear. Diving against debris Seven divers, including our PADI Regional Training Consultant Pam, sunk beneath the surface of our house reef to Dive Against Debris.
