SHALLOTTE, NC (WECT) - Scuba Now and Adopt an Angel partnered to host an underwater Easter egg hunt Sunday.
Both veteran and new divers participated. Newer divers received their diving certifications just in time for the event.
Organizers said they wanted to have fun on Easter while also bringing awareness about the environment and about the animals up for adoption.
“Our water, all the way around, the oceans and all the lakes and stuff need a lot of help from all the runoff and trash and debris just going in it," Chris Cannada, President of Scuba Now, said.
“So, hopefully this gets some people motivated to try to do something about recycling and trying to protect the waters,” he said.
The proceeds from Sunday’s event went towards medical bills for the animals.
