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.
As part of our commitment to a clean environment and Project Awares September 'Dive Against Debris' month, we took a team of our Divemasters in training, Divemasters and Instructors to a local beach area on Utila on Monday 29th September for a clean up.
The pier has a small current but we managed to get out early and have a great event. We had over 65 participants, 41 divers, 9 kayakers, St Pete Fire Department Divers (with van and boat), and almost 20 cleanup and data collector volunteers.
"Sasamat Lake has to be the dirties lake in BC" says Les Newman, owner of Langley Diving and PADI Course Director. "We have been coming here every fall for years and this year we set out to have more people, bringing out more garbage, raising more money for Project AWARE than ever before."
