It’s Time to Tackle Straws in Manly Cove!

Archived 22 Mar 2018 - Posted: 23 Jan 2018
Every week over summer 2017/18, a team of divers and snorkellers will conduct an underwater clean of a specific area of Manly Cove.

The number of straws and type of straw will be recorded using data sheets. We will also be recording details like the tide, weather, the weather in the week leading up to the dive etc. to allow us as much understanding of the reasons why particular debris was found.

At the conclusion of the project, we will be left with a solid set of numbers surrounding exactly how many straws were found and where they originated from. If the numbers of straws found are significant, this could help spark change on a national and even global scale!

Bring your snorkel, mask, and fins. We also highly recommend bringing a wetsuit if you've got one - it might be summer but it can still get chilly in the water. If you don't have snorkel gear, contact Dive Centre Manly to rent some snorkeling equipment.

Operation Straw is a collaboration between Dive Center Manly, SO Manly and Grumpy Turtle Design that will foster a sense of stewardship over Manly Cove - a beloved dive site- while simultaneously collecting information on one of the most harmful plastic items; straws.
