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.
In the Caribbean Bay Islands of Honduras, Utila Dive Centre is working hard to care for the delicate marine environment through research, community education and, most recently, the Utila Clean Up Festival, including a Dive Against Debris.

Project AWARE's Underwater Scavenger Hunt has just wrapped up and we couldn’t be more thrilled with the results. June and July gave way to an incredible show of support from Project AWARE divers as they worked to clean up their favorite dive sites and have a little fun while they did it.
As I sit in Guam airport waiting for the arrival of our Continental airlines flight back to cairns, I can look back on this trip as one of the best I have been lucky enough to have been a tour leader for. The 16 other divers on this trip were fantastic…
I have had an excellent day with Darren and Katy from Sub-Mission Dive Centre today. They put me in charge of filling cylinders, sorting the equipment logistics and loading the van! Phew! Then, this afternoon, I was also put to work serving customers. I must admit I was a hit with Sub-Mission's regular divers and customers, especially the ladies.
After a traumatic time trying to get to Kenya, I finally arrived back in the UK at Sub-Mission Dive Centre, in Stoke on Trent. I still had a bit of seaweed wrapped around my dorsal fin when I met Darren and Katy, owners of Sub-Mission Dive Centre.
Our ocean's sharks have a new champion and his name is Bali B. He happens to be a hero in the Lego universe and here, at Project AWARE, we're big fans of his anti-finning moves.
We recently discovered this Youtube video in support of our Sharks in Peril campaign. According to the animators who created Bali B’s adventure, it was made to "involve kids and bring a different light to the anti-finning campaign."
