Two actions of MarLitCy project took place in Pafos coastal front on 1st of May 2015. Enalia Physis, the leading partner of ”Dive Against Debris” and ”Meet the Sea” Actions, joined by Kimon Xylotymvou Diving Club and CyDive diving center, successfully organised and realized these actions. The actions took place in the framework of a multilevel event organised in Pafos Port area regarding marine litter, under the auspices of the European Parliament Office in Cyprus.
During ”Dive Against Debris”, a diving team by members of Enalia Physis and Divers of Kimon Xylotymvou dived in the area of the Roman wavebreaker of Pafos city and cleaned the area from all sorts of debris. Plastic bags, glass items such as bottles, fiberglass pieces, ropes, buoys, tins and cans and several other items were only some materials that were collected and removed from the sea bottom.
‘Meet the Sea” Action was a very fascinating event for young participants. Several kids had the opportunity to be educated about the marine litter issue and then experience their first scuba dive, through a supervisioned introductory dive. Enalia Physis and CyDive diving center provided this opportunity to the youngsters which had a first look at the underwater world.
The members of Enalia Physis would like to thank all participants, all project partners who supported this event and the Municipality of Pafos for hosting the event. We will keep you posted for the events of MarLitCy lead by Enalia Physis, that will take place in Ayia Napa.
