Koh Tao Eco Day, cleaning up the rubbish at Hin Wong.
Another succesful day for the Koh Tao Eco Day which involved a whole heap of volunteers from various Diveshops around the island all getting together & heading to one part of the island to clear the place of trash both on the land & in the water. With Big Blue Conservations leadership this time we headed over to the East coast of the island to the beautiful Hin Wong Bay. Managed to collect so much rubbish that it actually took us 4 truck loads to remove all the rubbish up to the Garbage heap. I would like to add here that 90% of that rubbish has been floating in the sea for god knows how long and has over time drifted its way to Koh Tao & washed up on the beach or in the bay & originates from the mainland or the other islands in the Gulf. Of course some of that rubbish does originate from Koh Tao I'm sure, but I dont want you thinking its all us. Cos it aint!
