We all know the garbage disposal strategies in third world countries around the globe. Change is slowly on the way. Aside from public education on how to deal with garbage, a political change is necessary to provide the needed infrastructure for efficient garbage disposal. Project AWARE is working hard to achieve this global goal. Sound statistics are often the basis for such political discussions. You as a diver can help collecting data on the garbage impact in the oceans through Dive Against Debris!

Earlier this month we completed a marine debris clean up at two dive sites removing over 70 meters of rope and fishing hooks!

On Sunday May 8th, I organised my first DAD/clean up event. I did it as part of my ongoing and growing concern for our planets seas and waterways, and also as my PADI Divemaster project.
