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.

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.

We're kicking off our new year-round Dive Against Debris program with a Debris Month of Action!

Throughout the month of September, Project AWARE divers around the world will mobilize to collect trash and log what they find here on the Project AWARE website. This data will go on to inform researchers of the debris issues facing the ocean. With a more accurate picture of what's happening in our ocean, we can begin to make better decisions around waste management and the policies that affect ocean life.

Local scuba divers and Sydney Dive Academy participated in Dive Against Debris last weekend at Bare Island, La Perouse.

Trained divers not only removed underwater debris such as plastic bottles, plastic bags and fishing line, but also identified and documented everything we see underwater in a larger effort to prevent marine debris.
