PADI’s Project AWARE has announced the launch of its new mobile app to support its Dive Against Debris initiative.

The new app is available on both the Google Play Store and the iTunes store. The objective of the new app is to make it easier for divers to report marine debris data.

The new app is intuitive and easy to use, and includes a list of common types of marine debris, as well as the ability to use the smartphones’ inbuilt geolocation function to better report the whereabouts of the debris. The resultant data can then be used by scientists and conservation experts to make better decisions about solutions to the issue of marine debris.

Project AWARE hopes that this new and innovative tool will give more of a voice to the underwater world, and drive change to prevent debris and pollution from killing our oceans. The app should improve the data set available, to shine a bright light on the problem of marine pollution.
