Here at Seafari Dive Center, we are all passionate scuba divers that love the ocean and are grateful to be diving in it every day. Now, more than ever, the ocean needs our help. The amount of garbage in our oceans is at an all-time high and although we can all do better on land to try to limit the debris that finds its way into the ocean, it is not going to improve any time soon. So, we would like to remind all of our customers at Seafari Dive Center that any dive can be a cleanup dive. You can pick up a piece of trash or plastic bottle on any dive and bring it back to the boat.
How Can You Help The Ocean Every Time You Dive? Dive Against Debris!
Since launching in 2011, Thousands of scuba divers have a part in the Dive Against Debris program in more than 50 countries around the world, reporting over 900,000 pieces of trash. scuba divers who remove marine debris from the ocean reported data on the types, quantities, and locations of materials collected although we do arrange specific dive site clean up trips, there is no reason why you can’t pick rubbish up on every dive if and as you see it.
This step is so important. Using this app you can send and report data that enters into a global database to help support the development and implementation of policies to improve solid waste management, locally and globally. It’s as easy as downloading an app to your smartphone! Download the free Dive Against Debris app from Google Play or iTunes and turn your phone into a tool for conservation.
Together we can all do better!
