Swanage Swanage Pier Dive
DiveStyle Swanage Swanage Pier Dive For Project Aware Week
On Sunday 20th September 2020 from 10am till 2pm DiveStyle are running a Project Aware Course and Dives due to the new COVID 19 rules we are unable to offer a social dive, however we are able to teach our courses so we have decided to run the Project AWARE Dive Ageist Debris course to support project aware.
You can choose to take part in the training drives or if you like to receive the PADI Speciality you can upgrade.
Swanage pier is a popular dive site for new and qualified divers, being one of the few sheltered sea diving sites on the south coast.
Thousands come to Swanage Pier to Scuba Dive under the wooden Pier framework or to board boats to other local dive destinations, including many wrecks lying in deeper water outside the bay. An area adjacent to the Pier has been buoyed off as a safe Diver Training Zone and with a depth of 5 meters Swanage Pier is a popular diving site for new and qualified divers.
Project AWARE’s flagship citizen-science program, Dive Against Debris®, empowers scuba divers to remove marine debris from the ocean and report data on the types, quantities, and locations of materials collected.
Since the program’s launch in 2011, more than 86,000 divers have participated in Dive Against Debris in 120 countries around the world, reporting over 1.6 million pieces of trash. As the only underwater debris data collection program of its kind, Dive Against Debris both improves the health of ocean ecosystems through localized volunteer efforts and provides valuable information about underwater debris to help inform policy change.
Project AWARE next goal: Add our next million pieces of debris to the global Dive Against Debris dataset by the end of 2020 to mobilize local communities and continue to build evidence of the scale of the global marine debris crisis. Be part of the #NextMillion2020!
