Together, we're battling back against ocean trash and showing the world what's found beneath the waves. Explore the map to find the types and amounts of debris items divers are reporting from more than 60 countries and help make change.
On Sunday 1st March 2015 the staff of Divers Down in Grand Cayman were joined by 10 volunteers in conducting a 2-tank clean-up dive trip. The 2 dives were done on sites in the George Town area that are not only popular with SCUBA divers, but also extremely popular with snorkel excursions from the Cruise ships due to their close proximity to the port.
Using equipment supplied by Divers Down and collection bags supplied by Project AWARE we embarked on our debris collection dives, arriving firstly at Cheeseburger Reef and then moving to the Wreck of the Cali for the second dive.
February 2, 2015 DIVE ARMY completed an AWARE Dive Against Debris. Thanks to Rainbow Reef Dive Center. At 1230 pm 15 participants that included a PADI Course Director, 2 PADI Master Instructors, a bunch of MSDTs, Instructors and Dive Masters headed out to Molasses Reef to dive the Deep ledge to clean up the reef. A lot of monofilament line, braided line, ropes, traps, and weights were found. This is indicitive of a fishing community as one would expect to find in the keys.
