Data reporting Redsea-DiversReport All Your Dive Against Debris Data

Reporting your Dive Against Debris data is essential to fight back against marine debris. Once reported, your data will enter a global database and help support the development and implementation of policies to improve solid waste management at all levels.

The data we collected on the day shows that better (wind-safe) garbage bins could improve the local situation.
