Activities

As divers, we have access to a unique perspective on the effect humans have on the underwater world, and as its ambassadors, we have a responsibility to try and do what we can. Every time when I dive I collect debris & remove ghost nets from the Ocean. To reduce marine debris by 50% in targeted countries by 2030, we need everyone working together at local, national and international levels. Ghost nets are fishing nets that have been abandoned, lost or discarded (ALD), at sea, on beaches or in harbours. They are a major contributor to the bigger problem of ghost gear, which refers to all types of fishing gear, including nets, lines, traps, pots and fish aggregating devices (FADs), that are no longer actively managed by fishers or fisheries. Each year, ghost gear is responsible for trapping and killing a significant number of marine animals, such as sharks, rays, bony fish, sea turtles, dolphins, whales, crustaceans and sea birds. They can cause further destruction by smothering coral reefs, devastating shorelines, and damaging boats. What are you doing for making a positive difference for the environment?
