As we approach the month of May when our next PADI IDC is to be held, our pro interns gained a rare but priceless experience as they join the Downbelow staff to remove an illegally dumped fishing net on the reef within the protected area of Tunku Abdul Rahman Park, Borneo.
For the Downbelow team, we have removed around 100 nets from the reefs over the years and for sure we will continue to do so whenever we find them. Even though this is a sad occurrence and it does happen frequently, we are glad that we can get the pro interns to be involved directly so that they know the correct techniques and the safe way to remove such nets.
The team set off to remove the net after a thorough briefing by Platinum PADI Course Director Richard Swann and obviously everyone paid attention because the removal process went without a hitch.
Congrats to the team and the interns!
