Here at Ahlan Aqaba Scuba Diving Centre every one of us is dedicated to caring for our reef and the environment in general. We are very active in showing this, which can be seen through our work in association with Dive Against Debris, a Project AWARE innovative. We have been conducting surveys of rubbish collected weekly at a particular dive site, currently Oliver’s Canyon. We collect as many bags as possible within our dive limits and then count what we get, for example how many drinks cans, plastic cups, fishing nets etc. We then enter this information onto Dive Against Debris data collection online. This means they can collate large amounts of information globally. Please note that we do not receive any funding from Project AWARE to do this – we are just eco geeks!
