Mark Your Calendar – September 16th

Please join us on September 16th (NOTE:  This is a Tuesday!!!) and our friends from Dive World.  We’ll be meeting at DEN in SL HQs at 5 p.m. SLT (7 p.m. CST, 8 p.m. EST) sharp to teleport over to Dive World. 

Join like minded environmentally conscious friends in Second Life and gear up for International Cleanup Day with this fun cleanup activity. Once you dive the depths of the beautiful waters of Dive World, removing marine debris as you go, stay and dance your virtual socks off on the beachside dance floor!

But the fun doesn’t stop there, get involved in the real world and volunteer to help make clean waters a reality and join the biggest underwater cleanup of its kind.  Project AWARE is calling all divers, snorkelers and water enthusiast to make their data count and help reverse debris trends this September.  About International Cleanup Day: Project AWARE Foundation spearheads global underwater cleanups during International Cleanup Day and year round. This annual volunteer event addresses the devastating impact of marine debris on the aquatic environment.  Project AWARE empowers dive centers and individuals to clean the world’s oceans, lakes, rivers and shorelines. Volunteers take part in practical cleanup solutions and collect data which is vital for change.

International Cleanup Day is held annually on the 3rd Saturday in September but cleanup and data collection activities are supported by Project AWARE, partners and volunteers on an ongoing basis.  In 2007 a total of 358,617 recorded volunteers helped Project AWARE clean 34,560 miles of shoreline and remove seven million pounds of rubbish.
