Dive Against Debris

Aug. 16/13

As divers we see the direct damage that marine debris, and in particular plastic, is causing our environment and the life in it. Every year tens of thousands of marine animals and seabirds die from eating or getting tangled in our trash that ends up in the ocean.

Imagine finding 305 bottle caps, 120 lighters and 254 odd flip flops at a beach near you. What would you do? PADI Instructor Joanna Hurford collected so much trash she decided to get creative and raise awareness about the rubbish issue in Indonesia and marine debris worldwide.

We know marine debris is preventable. Together, we can stop it by taking local action and supporting policy change. I did exactly that by Diving Against Debris for the first time since becoming the Executive Director of Project AWARE during a visit to the beautiful island of Koh Tao. My visit followed AWARE’s successful campaign efforts for vulnerable sharks and rays at CITES in March 2013 and it was exciting to share recent victory with our supporters.
