World Oceans Day

Reef Seen in Pemuteran has always prided itself in promoting a caring attitude to our fragile natural world. Every day our beach and shoreline are swept to remove the debris from stupid and careless people who seem to think it's OK to leave a trail of plastic behind them.  As a result we have a healthy reef and pleasant environment for everyone to enjoy. 

Today was especially important as our small local efforts get the boost of worldwide publicity from this internationally celebrated day.  To encourage a future generation to keep up the good work over 40 children from Pemuteran SD5 school came down to our beach this morning.

After signing the World Oceans Day pledge we armed them with collection bags, gloves and tongs provided by kind support of Reef Check Organisation.  They headed off down the beach and through the fishing village making a real impact.
