Dive Against Debris® Map

Explore the map to discover the types and amounts of debris scuba divers around the world have removed and reported from underwater environments since 2011. Our trash does not belong underwater however more than eight million tons of it enters the ocean each year entangling and injuring marine life and damaging critical habitats.

Together, we’re working toward solutions. As more volunteer divers get involved with Dive Against Debris®, Project AWARE can add the underwater view to a problem that remains out of sight for most of the public and help identify target areas where waste prevention efforts are needed most.

Take action below to protect the ocean planet and help fight against marine debris. Let us know what you think of the map by sending your feedback.
