Divers Declare War on Sea Litter


Today marks D-Day for divers around the country who will recover as much rubbish as they can from the ocean this month as part of the Dive Against Debris effort. Diving groups, ranging from local scuba divers to dive operators, will be hauling up plastic bags, bottles, fishing line and car batteries that litter the sea floors around the country’s main centres.

The New Zealand Underwater Association (NZUA) has organised a new campaign called Trash2Cash, which aims to raise funds towards identifying the major sources of marine litter and put to Kiwis a problem that is often ignored.
