Israel is proud of its long sandy beaches, but litter can pile up on them. Occasional efforts to clean beaches, though, neglect the rubbish that finds its way to the undersea floor. The Israeli Diving Federation is organizing an underwater clean up at two Israeli coastlines, Ashkelon and Givat Aliya off Jaffa. Boaz Meisels, a marine biologist who is organizing it for the diving federation, said that the garbage in the sea was “made in Israel” and not swept in by sea currents from our neighbors. He told reporter Arieh O’Sullivan that they hope to raise awareness of the pollution being caused by the public.
