Anyone can help save sharks

Do you want to help save sharks, but think there is nothing you can do, because you live too far from the Ocean? Do you think "I'm alone, what possible difference can I make"?

Well, there is good news! You can do something!

PADI, the professional association of dive instructors, through their Project Aware has launched a campaign to raise awareness for the huge problem plastic garbage entering the oceans presents.

Please help to save me! Thank you!

From Project Aware: Did you know that a staggering 250 million metric tons of plastic could make its way to the ocean in the next 10 years? And that as much as 70 percent of marine litter has been estimated to end up on the seabed.
Marine debris comes from many land and ocean sources. Yet few of us understand that our trash can travel over land, down streams, rivers and storm drains to the ocean. 

That's why Project AWARE is collecting marine debris data from divers. We're painting a clear picture of the underwater trash that threatens ocean life and building a case against ocean trash for all to see. 

Follow The Ugly Journey of Our Trash to discover more about its journey to the ocean and its dangerous impact on our marine life. Poster versions available in Chinese, Korean, Dutch, German, Italian, French, Spanish and Russian.

Watch and Share the Ugly Journey of Our Trash.



Help by educating your community, friends and colleagues on how our rubbish becomes the ocean's problem.
