Together, we're battling back against ocean trash and showing the world what's found beneath the waves. Explore the map to find the types and amounts of debris items divers are reporting from more than 60 countries and help make change.
On April 25, 2015 38 volunteers joined our coastal cleanup to Fight Against Debris. We had children and adults join in cleaning in the shallows as well as the deepest parts of the Rompeolas. There was a lot of fishing related debris with fishing lines, glass bottles and aluminum cans being the most abundant. The underwater cleanup was a great success with around 185lbs of debris collected, with arond 50lbs of that corresponding to fishing equipment. The day was perfect for a cleanup and everyone there was excited to give back to the Earth.
In Cornwall, event planning can be an arduous task. Poor visibility, inclement weather, rip currents, waves and large tidal ranges can cause the whole thing to be a very hit-and-miss affair. However, with such an array of stunning dive spots, all these obstacles just add to the anticipation and heighten the sense of achievement after a successful dive. The World Earth Day dive was no exception.
