rubbish, or recycling.
What You Learn
First, find a dive that has debris. Then we go about planning our attack and

the true impact of our efforts immediately. We'll also cover the following
- About marine debris, the damage done, what it is, where it comes from, and
how divers are part of the solution
- How to establish a Dive Against Debris survey, the survey frequency,
sites, profiles, and equipment. Also, the use of photography and knowing what
to leave behind.
- How to make your surveys count. The five easy steps to report the debris
you've removed to maximize each survey's benefits.
