Join the Debris Month of Action

Project AWARE News

We're kicking off our new year-round Dive Against Debris program with a Debris Month of Action!

Throughout the month of September, Project AWARE divers around the world will mobilize to collect trash and log what they find here on the Project AWARE website. This data will go on to inform researchers of the debris issues facing the ocean. With a more accurate picture of what's happening in our ocean, we can begin to make better decisions around waste management and the policies that affect ocean life.

Dive Against Debris is designed to connect the actions of divers all the way up to decision makers.

So the question is: are you in?

Join the movement and organize your own Dive Against Debris this September. We've even put together an organizer kit to get you started. Don't forget to log your debris and send us updates, photos and videos. We'll do our best to feature your incredible efforts this September!
