On Saturday, October 21, scuba divers from around the country will participate in Operation-“Dive Against Debris.” This underwater conservation effort is the result of a unique collaboration between the City of Gulf Shores and Project AWARE.  During this cleanup effort volunteer divers will canvas the near shore waters of the Gulf of Mexico in an effort to remove garbage and unnatural debris which can pose a significant threat to people and wildlife. 

Project AWARE is a growing movement of scuba divers protecting the ocean – one dive at a time. Focusing on marine debris, scuba divers can directly and positively affect real, long-term change in our community. 

Please consider assisting us with this first time operation by contributing toward this effort. Below are some suggested levels of donation however, any assistance will be greatly appreciated. 

All monetary donations collected go towards covering the cost of the event.  Please contact me with your level of support, for more information related to sponsorship's or how you would like to be involved.
