The Map of Underwater Trash
Since 2011 Project Aware has been collecting data from volunteer scuba divers about underwater debris around the world.
The Dive Against Debris Map shows the location of debris and trash scuba divers have removed and reported to Project Aware since 2011. If you select a marker on the map you can view details about the type and amount of debris reported and removed by Project Aware scuba divers.
The aim of the map is to raise awareness of the problems of underwater debris and also to provide a platform which enables divers to easily report and identify areas where waste prevention efforts are needed most.
