Similan Islands National Park, Aquadive Mermaid Academy Thailand, Scuba School International, Love Andaman tour agency, and scuba dive instructor Asirawat Chuchote – who loves dressing up as a mermaid for the pleasure of tourists – teamed up to launch a campaign called Part of the Ocean, which brought together volunteers to collect marine debris caused by the monsoon.

Most of the participants, dressed as mermaids, dived into the water to clean the ocean, providing a colourful photo-op for tourists visiting the Similan Islands National Park in Phang Nga province.

The campaign aimed to raise awareness among children, teens, and adults of marine waste while inspiring everyone to take part in tackling the problem, since waste, which has been mistaken for food by marine animals, is responsible for injuring or killing wildlife.
