Dive Against Debris – 22 June 2023

In the spirit of doing things differently, we committed to submitting monthly data to Project Aware's campaign – Dive Against Debris database, to enhance the underwater insights into a problem that remains out of sight for most of the public. This data will help identify target areas where waste prevention efforts are needed most.

Raja Ampat is the epicentre of marine biodiversity and attracts dive enthusiasts, snorkelers and adventurists worldwide. However, the island's location and currents make Raja Ampat a trap for artificial waste caused by the increasing population internally and in neighbouring countries, as well as poor waste management and treatment practices.
