Dive Against Debris™ Hero: Fredric Ihrsen
Alexa Ward, Community Relations Specialist
Since the launch of Dive Against Debris™ in 2011, more than 25,000 divers have participated in surveys that have removed more than 600,000 pieces of trash from underwater environments. Their efforts and progress have been astounding. This incredible, worldwide grassroots effort has saved the lives of countless ocean species and made our oceans cleaner and safer for marine plants, animals and divers alike. Though we’ve made significant progress over the last few years, the unfortunate reality is that there is still much more trash in the ocean, largely unreported.
