CLEANING OF SEA BEDS IN SOSUA
The first Monday of each month starting in June, divers and volunteers will host environmental awareness sessions that include cleaning of the seabed of Sosua beach and also host recreational activities. The next first of June, a group of Sosua diving schools and volunteers made the first day of environmental awareness to clean the bottom of the beach of Sosua, and remove the garbage that accumulates on the surface. This activity is supported by the Association for Sustainable Development of Sosúa ( ADSS ).
With the motto ” We will clean our ocean” !, the seminar, organized by the Canadian diver Bill Passmore who settled in the city and has been the driving force and inspiration of this program of environmental cleanup.

NEW MAN MADE REEF IN SOSUA BEACHES
EN ESPAÑOL: LIMPIEZA DEL FONDO MARINO DE LA PLAYA DE SOSUA:
Several schools got involved in the installation of new man made reefs that will further enhance the diving experience in Sosua, making it more attractive as more colorful fish will settle in the bay and other important areas such as three rocks and the wall. Several 300 pound square blocks are being placed to allow the growth of marine life. Photos courtesy of Eric Hertsens and Golden Treasures Real Estate.
