The third day of the training workshop included diving under water to collect samples to be sorted, as well as dividing the participants into groups to clean the beach and collect and sort samples. It is amazing that the number of cigarette butts dumped on the beach was counted, which amounted to 18,000 per 100 m.
At the end of the day, the closing ceremony of the training workshop was sponsored by the President of the University, Prof. Dr. Ghaleb Abbasi. Certificates were handed over to the participants from the institutions concerned with environmental affairs in the city of Aqaba and the students of the School of Basic and Marine Sciences at the university. The project team was honored by European experts from Italy and Greece.
