Project aware the state of the seasWhile walking , wadding and snorkeling along the Costa De Alermia in Spain I have noticed just how much rubbish is on both the beach and in the water / on reefs and the likes. While it makes the beach and reef less attractive that by far is not the worst impact it has on the sea
The worst impact it has is on the fish the Turtles and other marina animals who can and do with devastating results mistake things like plastic bags for jelly fish
Which is why when I am on the beach and in a position to I collect some of the plastic and other waste I come across . Including when wading and snorkeling and skin diving , But I don't do this alone I do it with my Brother Richard who as a Padi divemaster has his uses as he can get rubbish out the water I can't reach.
While Snorkeling along the Costa De Almeria in Spain the most common type of rubbish I have noticed in the waters is various types of plastics including the plastic bag
A few ugly facts and figures about the damage rubbish and plastic does to the sea / oceans (various sources )
