We receive the YMCA Peace Medal

Divers for Cleaner Lakes and Oceans is grateful to have been nominated and received the YMCA Vancouver Peace Medallion for Outstanding Contribution as a Social Change Leader. Our dive group managed to remove 2,240.2 lbs of garbage from our waters in 2017, bringing our total to 22,793.8 lbs since we started this little project four years ago.

I would like to thank all of our divers, helpers and contributors for their dedication to our environment, and also like to thank Jonathan Martin for kickstarting this project with me. Without his request to dive a freshwater lake, we may never have known or realized the amount of garbage that is in our local waters.

Going for dives with good friends is always a lot of fun. Going for dives AND doing something great for the environment just adds a big bonus to the day! This is a great way for me to keep active in the dive community and hopefully it will contribute to making our corner of the world just a little better than how we found it.
