Children are the future of our planet, and Divewise got a whole host of youngsters involved in a massive beach clean-up at Rinella Bay in Malta.
Senglea Primary Eco School pupils, with accompanying adults, descended on the area. Younger children cleaned the sand, sifting it and removing any debris found, while the older children went to another part of the beach to watch the divers from Divewise venture into the water, and to see what they recovered.
The latter also used pickers to clean the shallow waters, taking out any floating items that could be reached from the shoreline.
There was an impressive haul of rubbish collected, including plastic bottles, glass bottles, cigarette butts, wires, nets and foam. Many of the children were upset to see the amount of litter in the sea.
