सालाबादप्रमाणे महाशिवरात्रीला, म्हणजे 7 मार्चला, क्वेस्टच्या टीमने केले 'मासे वाचवा अभियान'. तिळसे (वाडा तालुका) इथल्या शिवमंदिरापाशी भरणाऱ्या जत्रेत लोकशिक्षण करण्यासाठी हे अभियान होते. मंदिराजवळ एका डोहात दुर्मिळ प्रजातीचे मासे आहेत, त्या डोहात लोकांनी कचरा टाकू नये म्हणून हा प्रयत्न गेली ७ वर्षं चालू आहे. पहिल्या वर्षी ७-८ पोती कचरा डोहातून काढला होता, पण या वर्षी एकच पोतं भरलं! क्वेस्ट टीमच्या अभियानाचा हा प्रत्यक्ष परिणाम!
