Description

Wellington Foundation Local Action. Global Impact.

Help keep your favorite dive site and local marine environment free of debris and contribute to the largest global underwater database in the world. A Dive Against Debris Diver takes a direct ‘fins on’ action for the ocean, collecting critical survey data from any or every dive that can be used by marine researchers and policymakers for conservation efforts.

Why take the PADI Dive Against Debris Specialty course?

Make a difference on every dive by activating your inner citizen scientist. During the Dive Against Debris® Diver Specialty course, you’ll learn how ocean plastic and trash cleanups not only keep your local dive sites healthier, but also how to contribute to a global database that documents our planet’s marine debris problem. Under the guidance of your instructor, you’ll participate in a Dive Against Debris survey and turn your passion for the underwater world into real action.

Join the PADI Torchbearertm movement of divers protecting our ocean planet and making every dive count.

What’s involved in the course?

You’ll plan and execute a dive with a buddy to remove underwater marine debris while demonstrating appropriate judgment as to which objects should and shouldn’t be removed from the ocean. After the dive, you’ll conduct a survey by recording and reporting your Dive Against Debris data.
