Calling all dive geeks and ocean warriors: the ocean needs you (and your underwater data).
Since the first Project AWARE International Cleanup Day events in 1993, AWARE divers organized thousands of cleanups to protect underwater habitats and marine species. Cleanup dives from the past 18 years have been a true inspiration, placing scuba divers in the spotlight, key to addressing debris issues on a global scale.
Show your commitment to ocean protection. Download this artwork and print your very own Dive Against Debris display to show your divers how to take action on marine debris. Place in your classroom, dive store or make it part of your display at an upcoming dive show.
