8 million tonnes of debris enters the world's oceans every year, equivalent to dumping a garbage truck into the ocean every minute of the day! The social, economic and environmental impacts of COVID-19 are yet to be realized. We are already seeing an increase in single-use items like gloves, masks, plastic bags & containers.

AWARE communities’ work to document & remove the pollution issue. Our surveys have collected data for the past 9 years, representing 1.6 million items of debris, collected by participants through the Dive Against Debris program, this acts as a baseline for monitoring this new level of debris disaster.

While Dive Against Debris can’t change the past it will help demand a better future.

We need support to continue to remove & report the debris making its way into our ocean, shine a light on this devastating issue to support policies that will prevent the ongoing tragedy in the future.
