Project AWARE Debris Month of Action

Posted by

As a scuba diver, you see the  unfortunate affect of marine debris firsthand. Whether it’s plastic bottles, forgotten nets or small pieces of trash animals mistake for food, you witness how debris harms our beloved underwater world. Unfortunately, the problem is only going to get worse if nothing is done.

This September, take action to dive against debris. The ocean depends on all of us to take steps toward putting an end to unnecessary pollution.

Marine debris kills tens of thousands of marine creatures every year affecting hundreds of species.  Even local communities can suffer; when trash washes up on the beach, it is unattractive and can be expensive to remove.

Every diver can make a difference, so take action this month to protect the oceans you cherish. If you’re short on time, make a donation to Project AWARE to support the efforts of others.
