Cleaner Beaches Initiative - Cape Town
Turtles don't drink through straws. Seals don't carry shopping in shopping bags and penguins don't have balloons at their birthday parties. Humans do. Yet the ones most affected by the waste we generate in our daily lives are these animals.
Things that we will only expect to be found in our trashcans can now be found in abundance on the otherwise beautiful beaches of South Africa and pose a daily threat to the wildlife living around our coastline. Unfortunately everything we use to make our daily lives easier ; plastic bags, plastic bottles; crates is making the lives of the amazing creatures in our ocean much harder.
This waste will not decompose and the animals can not get rid of it themselves. The only way that the plastic bags will be taken off our beaches and out of the ocean if is we do it. Help turn our breathtaking coastline back into a paradise for both animals and humans.

Moving Sushi - 250 dives!
When the call came through to help out the stricken Moving Sushi East Africa marine transect expedition, we jumped at the chance. Mozambique, Tanzania, kenya - 250 dives in 6 weeks, just our type of mission!

"After having to abandon our first vessel in Tofo Mozambique due to its inability to conduct our expedition, we had reached a point where we might have to cancel our expedition and force a team who had worked incredibly hard to disband. Fortunately we were physically and mentally rescued by OA2, who saw the merit in what we were doing, as well as the potential to be able to achieve our expeditions mission. Meeting and working with OA2 on the East Africa Transect has been both a privilege and a pleasure" Mike and Linda Markavina
