Utusan Malaysia, 11 Jan 2010
Ocean Elements Sdn Bhd, in collaboration with SnR Adventure had organized a Project AWARE Underwater Cleanup and Coral Reef Survey at Pulau Sembilan, Lumut, Perak from 26 – 27 December 2009. This event was attended by 22 divers and 5 media representatives from the local newspaper Utusan Malaysia and entertainment magazine URTV. The State Government of Perak had graciously provided a funding of RM 20,000 to cover half of the expenses incurred by the program, while the other half was paid for by our participating divers.
