What We Do

We are a group of volunteer Conservationists who refuse to simply stand by and watch, whilst our seas turn into uninhabitable dumping grounds.

The global marine debris problem is one the greatest threats our planet has ever encountered. If the seas can no longer sustain life, neither can the planet. The problems posed by marine debris are as diverse as the techniques used to overcome them. Divers are in a unique position to assist in tackling this threat.

The group is made up of people from various backgrounds, agencies and organisations. We are supported by The National Trust, who own some of our finest coastline. They help us to access the more remote dive sites, that would otherwise be neglected.

We’ve also been assisted by The Wildlife Trust’s divers, as part of their Sea Search Programme. And run combined events with Surfers Against Sewage and the Mires Mor organisation, on their community beach cleans.

The events are run as part of Project AWARE’s Dive Against Debris program (www.projectaware.org). They are a non-profit making, independent, global organisation who use the valuable data gathered from us.

Both diving and non-diving volunteers are equally as important to us. So if you would like to take a proactive step towards protecting our seas, please join our group
