Review for Ocean Defenders Alliance, Huntington Beach, CA, USA
I'm the owner of Island Divers Hawaii. Ocean Defenders Alliance charters (discounted for a non-profit) our dive boat monthly to clean up fishing debris and trash off the beautiful Portlock wall in Hawaii Kai.
We advertise the event to the local dive community who volunteer their time to come out and clean up the local reefs. They also contribute in a small way financially to Ocean Defenders Alliance.
I've been around the block a few times, this is one of the best non-profit, community and local business collaborations I've ever seen. No government grants and no one getting paid, but yet it is a three-year ongoing effort that continues to thrive and grow. We typically have more volunteers wanting to go on a clean up than we can safely take on the boat now.
I'm proud to be a part of it!
