Dive Against Debris – clean the seas
If like me you love the sea and feel it’s a real privilege to be down there seeing ‘stuff’ then why not come and help us the keep the sea clean and habitable for all the critters. On 27th October we’re really proud to be running our first Dive Against Debris course. We’ll be cleaning and surveying the Mulberry Harbours and then logging all the data. We hope to make this a regular thing! So come and be a part of this and join the world in cleaning the seas – oh and at the same time get your Dive Against Debris qualification!
2 dives, the Dive Agaianst debris qualification and a truly ‘feel good’ day doing your bit for the ocean – all for just £175. PLEASE come and join in.
The blurb from Project Aware so you know what it’s all about:
Project AWARE’s flagship citizen-science program, Dive Against Debris, empowers scuba divers to remove marine debris from the ocean and report data on the types, quantities and locations of materials collected.
Since the program’s launch in 2011, more than 50,000 divers have participated in Dive Against Debris in 114 countries around the world, reporting over 1 million pieces of trash. As the only underwater debris data collection program of its kind, Dive Against Debris both improves the health of ocean ecosystems through localized volunteer efforts and provides valuable information about underwater debris to help inform policy change.
Project Aware’s next goal: Add another million pieces of debris to the global Dive Against Debris dataset by the end of 2020 to mobilize local communities and continue to build evidence of the scale of the global marine debris crisis. Be part of the #NextMillion2020!
