Downbelow 5 Star IDC Centre hosted a beach & reef cleanup on Gaya Island in July 2011, with over 30 volunteers from Sabah’s local community.

Together we stood up to the onslaught of ocean trash by creating awareness for the increasing problem of marine debris and its impact on our reefs & beaches.

During these events divers, snorkelers and environmental lovers act as citizen scientists to remove and catalog debris found around our waters. The debris we collect inform local leadership and action, not only for our favorite places that need it most, but on a global scale.

RM680 was raised by way of a raffle for the Project Aware Foundation to further assist their conservation efforts.
