Pay the ocean forward by helping clean it up on your next dive. Learn about the problems of marine debris, conducting Dive Against Debris surveys, and how divers are a part of the solution to keeping our oceans clean.
As divers and ambassadors, we should protect what we love. We travel thousands of miles across the world to appreciate this vast underwater world and the incredible creatures that call it home so it’s time to make a difference with Project AWARE, Dive Against Debris.
Your training starts in the classroom by learning:
· About marine debris, the damage done, what it is, where it comes from and how divers are part of the solution.
· How to establish a Dive Against Debris® survey, the survey frequency, sites, profiles and equipment. Also the use of photography and knowing what to leave behind.
· How to make your survey count. The five easy steps to report the debris you’ve removed to maximize each survey’s benefits.
· How to join the global Project AWARE movement of scuba divers protecting our ocean planet.
During your one open water dive, you will conduct a Dive Against Debris® survey, including weighing, sorting, recording, disposing and reporting your marine debris to Project AWARE.
See the Project Aware page for course schedule.
You can start by reading the Dive Against Debris Survey Guide, the Marine Debris Identification Guide and by downloading the Dive Against Debris Data Card from the Project AWARE website.
