Tioman Island Clean Up Day 2016: Gala Night

Following my two previous write up on Tioman Island Clean Up Day 2016, where divers were sent on a mission to scour the ocean for rubbish, search and destroy crown of thorns as well as installation of the coral nursery table under the sea and the school children making seahorse sculpture out of recycled plastic bottles,Tioman Island Clean Up Day 2016 has finally come to an end and was considered a huge success, and the divers celebrated their effort during the Gala Dinner hosted by Singapore Dive Operator in Restaurant Matahari.

And lucky draw sponsored by Berjaya Group were drawn as a token of appreciation for all the good things the divers has done for Tioman Island.

Tioman Island Clean Up Day is indeed a good effort and being given the opportunity to witness how difficult it is to take care of the coral garden first hand, I wish I can play a more active part in Tioman Island Clean Up Day next year, and I urge everyone to play their part next year by volunteering. If you can’t, then don’t litter, no matter where you go. Remember, no effort is too small to make a difference.
