Brisbane Dive Academy says
In response to the onslaught of marine debris, one of the biggest ocean issues of our time, Project AWARE runs a Dive Against Debris campaign. This is a campaign created by divers for divers, this global, underwater survey of rubbish is designed to increase debris removal efforts, prevent harm to marine life and connect your underwater actions to policy changes and prevention.

As a 100% aware store, the Brisbane Dive Academy is actively involved with project aware and their ongoing conservation efforts.

With all this in mind we invite you to come join us clean up our beloved Tweed Heads River and Jack Evans Boat Harbour as marine debris is not only unsightly, it’s dangerous to sea life, hazardous to human health, and costly to our economies. Marine animals can become entangled in debris or mistake small particles of trash for food – often with fatal results. Divers, swimmers and beachgoers can be directly harmed by encounters with debris or its toxins. And, the costs of plastic debris to marine ecosystems are estimated at 13 billion dollars a year.

Join us and take action against marine debris!

Cost: $60 which will secure you tank and weights, BBQ and cover our transport costs as well as a $10 donation per person to Project Aware.
