During the last weeks of May, the Lighthouse Marina Resort Legacy Foundation and International Coastal Cleanup Zambales team leaders, Zedrik Avecilla and Jozen Curva witnessed the spectacular aquatic life in the outskirts of Sampaloc Cove and Grande Island in Subic Bay, Zambales. They took SCUBA diving classes, instructed by Rene Guevara of NAUI Worldwide, to have a total immersion with the nature from a different perspective. Most importantly, it also serves as one of the ways to express a commitment to learn more about the sea in order to target the main goals of the ICC campaign.
The mere experience of drawing oneself into the depth of the ocean is both exhilarating and liberating. The underwater world houses a number of species, such as the coral reefs and various kinds of marine life that is vital to our eco system. That’s one of the reasons why people are possibly drawn to the undeniable beauty of the ocean deep.
It is indeed true to say that ‘what you see often is only a fractional part of what it really is, according to the team. It was a whole new experience to them because what humans mostly see in the surface is different from what’s underneath. It is also humbling to realize that we are the ones responsible of protecting and preserving the beauty of our own planet, our only home.

Furthermore, the International Coastal Cleanup Zambales extends their gratitude to Brent International School for supporting the ICC Campaign by allowing the team to use their pool for the SCUBA training. Special thanks to their personnel, Mr. Steve Davis and Mr. Jeff Mayrose.
Dedicated in creating a wave of change to help preserve our environment
