The work of volunteers is making a big splash for wildlife in Wellington Harbour.

Around a dozen divers have banded together and cleared the capital’s seafloor of rubbish near Clyde Quay.

They collected six tonnes of trash in the area including items such as e-scooters, live bullets and an aircraft tyre.

Ghost Diving President Rob Wilson told Mike Hosking their work is having a positive impact.

He says it's fantastic to see photos showing a lot more life in the harbour after their rubbish collections.
