Elle & Vire Sea Clean Up: making waves for change

Right now, the health of our oceans is more crucial than ever. APEX recently embarked on the Elle & Vire Sea Clean Up in partnership with Atoll Divers Seychelles for an inspiring journey towards marine conservation.

On Saturday, 4 May, we joined forces with Mr. Flavien Joubert, the Minister for Agriculture, Climate Change, and Environment for an underwater cleanup at Shark Banks and Twin Barge, near Bel-Ombre Port.

Before setting sail from the Hilton Labriz Marina, the Minister shared words of encouragement, highlighting the importance of initiatives like these in safeguarding our oceans. We were delighted to unveil our new APEX recycling initiative. This added an extra layer of significance to the day's activities, reinforcing our commitment to environmental stewardship.

We set sail from the Hilton Labriz Marina for what would be not just an exciting excursion, but a significant step towards preserving our precious marine ecosystems.

Diving in, we quickly encountered a stark reminder of the threats facing our oceans.

Fishing lines tangled amongst coral reefs and a net from a tuna vessel were among the debris we collected – highlighting the need for ongoing missions like these to protect our precious coral reefs.

 It was an exciting and impactful day. Each piece of rubbish and debris removed from the ocean signified a step towards a cleaner, healthier future for our marine life and coastal communities.
