Our Cause: Making Our Lakes & Oceans Cleaner
My name is Henry Wang and I have been scuba diving in the Vancouver, BC Canada area since 2004. During that time, I have been involved in marine and ocean conservancy projects in one way or another. In 2014, my dive partners and I began exploring some of our local lakes and ocean shoreline areas that have a lot of underwater garbage accumulation. What we found was quite shocking so we began a grassroots effort to remove all the garbage from these bodies of water. Often it is quite easy to remove large amounts of junk just by picking up discarded beer bottles and crab traps. Other times, a popular party lake can contain enormous amounts of trash within just a few hundred square meters. We hope that by removing the often unseen and ignored garbage that is underwater in our waterways, we can pass on a cleaner and healthier environment to our next generation.
