Coordinator: Michael Westreicher

Michael is a PSCR/Technical diver with a preference for cave diving. Next to his dive skills he is passionate videographer & editor for underwater environment. Austria does not have an access to the ocean so Michael and his team are focused to remove trash and lost fishing gear from the Austrian lakes.

The first project of was in year 2017 when they recognised a dead fish entangle in a lost net. Over the year GD Austria removed a lot of stuff which polluted the clear water of the alpine lakes. With growing collaborating of the “Österreichische Bundesforste” (owner of the biggest lakes) GD Austria try extend the projects.

Regularly the core members join projects from Adriatic and German chapter but also global missions.
