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.
LAUDERDALE-BY-THE-SEA -- 80 volunteers consisting of local divers, snorkelers, surfers, students and beach-goers participated in the first annual Harvest Pier Clean-Up to help support the Project AWARE movement for a trash free ocean and environment. Volunteers above and below water collected over 300 pounds of trash! The 2 hour event was held on Saturday, November 8, 2014 on and below Anglin’s Fishing Pier in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea and was organized by ‘SOS Ocean Clean-Up’ and ‘Gold Coast Scuba.’
We had the biggest turn out ever for a Dive Against Debris on Saturday 27th September with 34 Divers helping out. We had to take out two boats to Palace Wall and all the divers spread out to cover as much of the area as possible. A big thanks to Stuart Cove's Dive Bahamas for supplying the boats, gear and crew including captains Carl & Dexter and Instructors Terri, Gigi, Katie and Charlotte.
