A scuba diver attaches several lifting drums to a deck railing on the Piscadera Beach coral reef to prepare it to be lifted to the surface. Five gallon plastic drums were strategically placed around the coral reef clean-up area and once they were filled with air from the scuba diver’s tanks they floated to the surface and were collected for disposal. After four coral reef clean-ups they have removed over 8,000 pounds of debris from the reef.
