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.
A total of 55kg of rubbish was collected on Wednesday the 27th of May by the dive against debris team made up of twenty-three divers from Ban's Diving Resort and Sunshine Divers. The team targeted Laem Thien and Hin Wong Bay on the east coast of Koh Tao, Thailand. It was amazing to see so many divers working together to help keep our beautiful island the paradise that we all love. As scuba divers we are the ambassadors for the aquatic environment; the ocean requires our respect and protection.
So its been a while since we did a Dive Against Debris here at Asia Divers. So we got back to it during the Instructor Development Course to make sure our new PADI Instructors know how to be a good role model when it come to the environment. We found all sorts of trash but the main items where plastic rappers and fishing lines Thanks to Ferdi, Eric, Junie, Cris and Charmaine for taking part in the clean up, I hope it inspires you all to think more about the environment, so our children's children can see all the amazing things we saw.
