As SCUBA diving professionals we are stewards of marine and freshwater ecosystems around the world and in our own back yard. Over the years we have organized many community based water cleanups. These are wonderful events that build community and have resulted in over 15,000 pounds of garbage being removed. In one summer season alone we were able to remove 11,000 pounds of garbage from waterways surrounding Yellowknife. These events are often posted on the “S**t I Found Diving in Yellowknife” facebook and instagram pages. Shore support is important for these events to retrieve garbage from divers and help organize it. We welcome divers and non-divers alike to come help clean our beautiful freshwater lakes and rivers. Come join in the fun and stay tuned for clean ups coming this summer.
