Cleaning the seabed of Cabo de Palos

Garbage and polluting elements are notoriously affecting the health of the seas and their ecosystems. Cabo de Palos has a Nature Reserve that must be taken care of. Therefore, the Federation of Underwater Activities of the Region of Murcia ( FASRM ) has organized for this Saturday, November 9, a cleaning of the seabed, with the collaboration of the City of Cartagena, which will provide several containers for pollutants extracted from the sea, and other organizations and institutions such as the Naranjito Diving ClubEcoembes or the Spanish Federation of Underwater Activities with its ‘Bubbles Solidarias’ program.

The objective of this initiative, in which 6 ships with 150 volunteers will participate, in addition to cleaning for the protection of the Cabo de Palos reserve, is to make people and institutions aware of the need to and prevent these polluting elements from being thrown into the sea where they gradually kill life in the area.

At 11 o’clock, the team of professional divers and volunteers will meet at the Naranjito Diving Club to leave, subsequently, towards the coves to make the dives. At one in the afternoon, the boats will return to the port to unload waste and make a second departure with the corresponding dives and collection of more waste. At the same time, volunteers on foot will carry out a coast cleaning on Levante Beach .

The activity will end with a paella for all attendees.
