Red Sea liveaboard operator blue o two has raised almost £9,000 for Bite-Back.

The UK-owned operator raised a grand in December 2011 alone in the run-up to Christmas.

As part of the ‘Breathe Life Into The Oceans’ campaign, bo2 collects donations from guests aboard their modern fleet of vessels.

Divers can choose to donate a 20p levy per air fill they receive whilst diving on one of the fleet.

For this act of generosity they receive a Bite-Back sticker and a logbook stamp to document their contribution.

British charity Bite-Back focuses on marine species under threat from commercial fishing, namely sharks and white fish.

The group has the backing of celebrity chefs including Gordon Ramsay and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.

If you fancy getting involved, even non-guests can contribute by visiting the blue o two website to make a donation.
