Why Underwater Clean-up?
In light of his vision, Ahmed Gabr, the Guinness World Record holder for the deepest dive in the history of mankind, thinks its payback time to the underwater world.
For decades the marine life brought happiness to all scuba divers around the world and since Egypt is blessed with the magnificent Red Sea that attracts divers from all over the globe. Ahmed thought its about time to show some appreciation to it. He is organizing the biggest underwater clean-up after the application has been officially approved by Guinness World Records.
This record is for the greatest number of people participating in an underwater clean-up at events held within a 24-hour period at a single venue.
For the purposes of this record, an underwater clean-up is defined as a continuous operation in which divers wearing breathing apparatus search an underwater area for man-made waste products with the aim of removing them from the natural environment.
