Out of our busy week doing maintenance work and preparing our rooms for new arrivals, we took one day to do our preservation duties collecting trash from one of our dive site all the way to the beach. Teluk Kambahu or Kambahu Bay is one of the most famous site for muck diving and the one with more various octopus species we can find. The sad side is, it is one of the site piled with garbage. We have been working with the government to get their attention on this garbage issue and hope that they move quicker to solve the issue. Meanwhile, we took one day this week, pick up our trash bags and do our part.

But look, who got trapped inside the trash! We carefully carried him back to the water.
