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.
It was great fun joining the Calypso Team this 18th September for Dive Against Debris. IDC candidates, divers and staff all jumped in to remove trash from underwater. Marine debris does more than just spoil the beauty of our oceans; it is also a silent killer, choking and entangling marine animals and smothering coral reefs. Removing it is vital to the health of the reefs.
FORT LAUDERDALE -- Over 120 volunteers consisting of local divers, snorkelers, surfers and beach-goers participated in the first annual SOS Ocean Clean-Up to help support the Project AWARE movement for a trash free ocean and environment.
