NAUI Members in Hong Kong had a very successful clean up day on Saturday, July 7, 2012. Organized by NAUI Course Director Chan Chi Wa (Sam Chan), NAUI Instructor Trainer Lee Wai Yip (Kent Lee), the Hong Kong Recreational & Technical Diving Group brought seventy divers, including eleven staff members, from all over the Pacific Rim to participate in 2012 International Underwater Cleanup Day. Participants, who were divided up into five different teams, collected trash from the High Island Reservoir (part of the Hong Kong Geopark natural area). The event was very successful thanks to multiple organizations in Hong Kong: Blue Point Diving Center Ltd., Pacific Ocean sports Center, 430 Diver Association, Breathless Emotions, and ship owners Cheung Ming and Hong Sir.
