More than 700kg of rubbish was removed from famous deep diving sites in the Egyptian Sinai resort of Dahab. Organised by the northern Egyptian resort diving centre Desert Divers, 17 people spent seven hours removing rubbish from the shores of both the Canyon and Blue Hole as part of Project Aware’s International Clean-up Day.
Half of the Desert Divers crew started at the Canyon dive site and the other half at the Blue Hole before meeting in the middle seven hours later.
Dahab (دهب) is a small town situated on the southeast coast of the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt. Formerly a Bedouin fishing village, located approximately 100 km (62 miles) northeast of Sharm el-Sheikh, Dahab is still considered to be one of the Sinai’s most treasured diving destinations. The arrival of international hotel chains and the establishment of other ancillary facilities has now made this a popular destination with tourists. The nearest international airport is located at Sharm el-Sheikh. (Source: Wikipaedia)
