Keep Palm Beach County beautiful! Celebrate Earth Day on April 20th with Jupiter Dive Center and help keep our local reefs trash-free by participating in the Great American Cleanup. We’ll make it worth your while with a special afternoon charter rate and t-shirts for the first 25 divers who sign up! After all, the earth doesn’t stop at the high tide mark.
What is the Great American Cleanup?
The Great American Cleanup is a celebration of Earth Day that takes place during the entire month of April. Thousands of volunteers will show their appreciation and dedication to their communities by participating in community-sponsored events removing litter from our public spaces—both above and below the water. Additional activities may include tree plantings, recycling events, graffiti removal, and other activities that help safeguard the environment and beautify our communities. Jupiter Dive Center has partnered with Keep Palm Beach Beautiful to help bring this opportunity and more to Jupiter, Florida.
Marine debris is a growing environmental concern. Sadly, marine animals ingest plastics at an alarming rate. Debris can also smother delicate corals. Derelict fishing nets, line, six-pack plastics and other trash poses a significant entanglement issue to marine life. Debris can even damage boats and other watercraft upon contact. Not only does marine trash impact sea creatures, but it also negatively impacts the economic health of coastal communities. Learn more by visiting the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Marine Debris Program.
Jupiter Dive Center: Clean Reefs Clean Earth
Divers have always been stewards of the underwater realm. Take the plunge with Jupiter Dive Center and help scour the reefs for trash on Saturday, April 20th. Need more incentive? How about a reduced charter rate? Join in our reef cleanup and only pay $60.00 for the afternoon 2-tank charter. Still not convinced? The first 25 to register will receive a Great American Cleanup t-shirt!
Earth Day may only occur once a year, but divers know that keeping our reefs healthy is an ongoing concern. Jupiter Dive Center is dedicated to this mission and also partners with the Southeast Florida Action Network (SEAFAN) a reporting and response system designed to improve the protection and management of Florida’s southeastern reefs. If you can’t participate on our Earth Day event, please consider joining us in late July for another debris dive to safeguard our precious reefs.
Help keep the waters and reefs we love to dive debris-free. Together we can make a difference!
