As a professional diver, you have a natural affinity for ocean protection. You see first-hand the devastating effects of marine debris on underwater environments. With your unique underwater perspective and skill set, you have the power to make a difference!
Join divers around the globe in Dive Against Debris™, Project AWARE’s flagship citizen science program that aims to reduce the negative impacts of marine debris each time we dive. More than just a cleanup, Dive Against Debris is the world’s first and only underwater marine debris survey that utilizes data collected by divers to inform policy changes leading to a measurable reduction of trash entering our oceans.
As a PADI professional, you have the skills and knowledge to make a positive impact. Now Project AWARE® wants to arm you – and all divers across the globe – with the right tools and resources to put your next Dive Against Debris into action.
In an effort to make Dive Against Debris easier for divers of all different countries and nationalities, Project AWARE has expanded its Dive Against Debris resources to more than 12 different languages. You can now remove, record and report marine debris no matter where you dive or what language you speak.
Thank you for doing your part to protect our ocean planet – one dive at a time.
