Dive Against Debris PDF Print E-mail



Abu Dhabi local scuba divers teams up with ADGAS, EDA and Al Mahara Diving Center will Dive Against Debris this 17th September 2011 at Abu Dhabi International Marine Sports Club marina. As part of Al Mahara Diving Center’s commitment to protecting the ocean, trained divers not only remove underwater debris such as  plastic bottles, plastic bags, cans and fishing line, but also identify and document everything we seen underwater in a larger effort to prevent marine debris. This campaign is supported by Environment Agency of Abu Dhabi, Abu Dhabi International Marien Sports Club, Central Waste Management of Abu Dhabi and CNIA.


Marine debris – or our trash in the ocean – makes its way to our underwater environments by the ton.  Al Mahara Diving Center along with divers around the world are demanding a permanent reduction in and prevention of the garbage we create that damages sensitive marine ecosystems - even in some of the most remote corners of the globe.

 “Al Mahara Diving Center is committed to working with divers and beach volunteers to address marine debris issues locally and contribute to the global view of marine debris underwater”, says Kathleen Russell, PADI Course Director from Al Mahara Diving Center.

Scuba divers are uniquely positioned to tackle the global marine debris issue, to take action every day and prevent debris from entering the ocean.
