Project AWARE Week in Curaçao

“Our island’s subaquatic life is one of the many things that sets our island apart from the others in the Caribbean. So, it is of immense importance that we all work together as a sustainable community to conserve our ocean. The commitment of the Curaçao Dive Industry to the Dive Against Debris and Adopt a Dive Site Initiative is the first step for sustaining and spreading awareness of our island’s ocean life. With the assistance and teamwork of the entire community I am certain that we can make this initiative bigger, create a sustainable change and provide the upcoming generation a healthier ecological marine life.” says the Curaçao Hospitality and Tourism Association

Through Dive Against Debris, volunteer divers’ surveys capture quantitative data specific to marine debris found on the seabed yielding insight on the effects and extent to which our everyday trash is infiltrating the marine environment.

Although it’s believed that over 70% of marine debris that enters the ocean ends up on the seafloor, little quantitative information is available regarding the types and quantities of this rubbish. Dive Against Debris data aims to fill this gap – providing quantitative data, and an accurate perspective about underwater marine debris, that policy-makers simply cannot ignore.

Data submitted this Earth Day, during AWARE Week and year-round goes towards reaching our ambitious goals to reach our next million pieces of debris reported by the end of 2020.

Save the date and start with a pledge to make #EveryDiveaSurveyDive today, tomorrow and beyond!
