Last Sunday, to kick off Debris Month of Action, PADI and Project AWARE staff from the Bristol office in the UK organized a Dive Against Debris event in collaboration with West Country Divers in Swanage.
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.
