On 16th October 2015, Alaa Al Masri, Project AWARE 100% AWARE Partner, joined by more than 30 dive volunteers, completed a Dive Against Debris survey in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. The team removed 500 kg of trash #BeneathTheWaves and reported their underwater data to add to Project AWARE’s global effort to show the true extent of the marine debris crisis. The team of committed Dive Against Debris volunteers also conducted a beach club at Shams Resort to engage the local community and further raise awareness. On the very same day, Alaa Al Masri took on another challenge: raising funds for his favorite charity by taking part in a Finathon and setting up his own My Ocean Challenge raising over $500 to protect sharks and the ocean. Check out Alaa My Ocean blog post and gallery to see all the photos from these wonderful actions.
