A group of divers has partnered with various stakeholders in Iloilo and Antique as it embarked on a six-month underwater cleanup in Antique’s Nogas Island, a favorite diving spot in Anini-y town. “We looked forward to have cleaner reef for Nogas Island and control the over population of the crown of thorns that preys on corals,” said Karlo Agao, a dive instructor of the Basecamp Divers Iloilo, on Monday. The group together with representatives from the Provincial Environment and Natural Resources (PENRO) of Antique, Community Environment and Natural Resources (CENRO) Belison and the association of banca operators in Nogas gathered on Sunday (Sept. 30) for a whole day underwater and coastal clean-up drive.
