Divers Against Debris
Marine debris is a global problem that affects not just our oceans, but also the animals that live in it. It is important that we all do our part in helping to reduce and prevent marine debris. Beyond The Corals is committed to protecting the marine environment around Bonaire and is passionate about educating others on how to be responsible and environmentally conscious divers. Luckly on Bonaire we find near to nothing on our reefs on the west side of the island due to the wind coming from the east. However, after a wind reversal you might find some and by bringing back any debris found during your dives, you are not only contributing to important marine research, but also helping to keep our oceans clean and healthy for generations to come. If you want to do even more, you can sign up for an AWARE specialty, like the Divers Against Debris Specialty and become a leader in conservation just like us.
Let’s all work together to make a difference and protect our oceans!
