Join us for our annual Beach Clean-Up & Dive Against Debris. Every year we join the thousands worldwide who choose this weekend to do their part to clean up our environment. This year we will be cleaning up Lake Shore State Park on Lake Michigan in Downtown Milwaukee. We will clean up both above water and underwater. With more to explore and protect, this year's event will be fun for the whole family, divers and non-divers alike .
We are hosting a Dive for Debris clean up of the Ocean College House Reef at the Hilton Fayrouz Hotel, Naama Bay... guests will be diving the shallow reef here collecting as much litter as possible and comparing it to our World Clean up Dive last year.
If you lost some pants somewhere near Moscow, Russia - never fear, they’ve been recovered by the debris divers from 13 Dreaming Dolphins. And thanks to their fantastic work and spirited Dive Against Debris competitions, we now have debris data recorded for three pairs of men’s underpants and a parachute.
Since Project AWARE’s June launch of the new Dive Against Debris program, developed just for divers, 13 Dreaming Dolphins has been logging their debris dives each month. And you just never know what you’re going to find.
This month, we’re celebrating the Debris Month of Action and we’re kicking things off with a marine debris photo contest. We want to know what kind of debris you find when you dive. What better way to show us than with a photo!
Following several highly successful Project Aware Beach Cleanups conducted by Zanzibar Watersports in previous years (see above photo), please join us in surveying and cleaning Nungwi House Reef in our first ever 'Dive Against Debris'. All qualified divers are invited to dive with us for free whilst volunteering in this special initiative on 15 September 2011. Spaces are limited, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
The Aussie Fundraising team, an initiative of Alan Nash and Tommy Soderstrom, owners of El Galleon Dive Resort and Asia Divers, Philippines, were just given a royal send-off on their fundraising journey around Australia. Divers from St. George Underwater Centre in south Sydney initiated their journey in the most fitting way they know how - by Diving Against Debris and hosting a BBQ.
As we prepare to kick-off Debris Month of Action underwater on September 1, we're inspired by this incredible beach cleanup project that’s become a striking piece of marine debris art thanks to Camps International in Africa.
