Kids and Divers from Croatia and Slovenia to Clean Savudrija Bay’s Seabed

Lauren Simmonds

As Andrea Vedrina/Morski writes on the 4th of June, 2019, more than two hundred divers from Croatia and Slovenia will be included in the ecological action ”Clean-up without borders”, in which they will work to clean the seabed of Savudrija bay on Sunday, June the 9th.

The divers will clear both sides of the bay, both the Slovenian and the Croatian side. The divers will remove large scraps in front of Piran and in Savudrija near Veli Jože camp and in the harbour.

The children will provide a valuable contribution to this action in Savudrija. Under the guidance of their diving instructor, participants from The International Children’s Diving Eco Patrol will help purge the sea along the coast of Veli Jože camp and learn about building a better relationship with the sea in the future.

The main goal of the action, along with the obvious cleaning of the area’s seabed, is to raise awareness of the importance of conservation of the plant and animal world in the Adriatic sea. In order to do this, it is necessary to connect citizens of all generations and neighbouring countries, and since environmental concerns know no boundaries, divers from more than thirty clubs and associations from neighbouring Bosnia and Herzegovina will also take part along with Croatian and Slovene divers.

The event is organised with the support of no less than Electrolux, which donated part of the money made from vacuum cleaner sales during the spring to cleaning Savudrija bay’s seabed.

The co-organisers are the HRVI Nemo-Adriatic diving club, PGD Piran, Zagreb Holding and its subsidiary Vladimir Nazor.

The ”Clean-up without borders” action, along with the help of the International Children’s Diving Eco Patrol is held under the auspices of President of the Republic of Croatia Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović and President of the Republic of Slovenia Borut Pahor, as well as the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Energy, the Ministry of Demography, Family, Youth and Social Policy, the Environmental Protection and Energy Fund, the City of Umag, and the City of Piran.
