Healthy Seas: a journey from waste to wear

Healthy Seas: a journey from waste to wear

Every year more than 640,000 tons of fishing gear is abandoned, lost, or otherwise discarded in the oceans causing suffering and death to millions of marine animals, degradation to marine ecosystems and socio-economic impacts to local coastal communities.

Healthy Seas and Ghost Diving UK North offer schools the opportunity to learn about marine litter, with an emphasis on the deadliest type of marine litter; “ghost nets”.

Students will have the opportunity to meet a Ghost Diver, explore the diving equipment needed for their missions and hear their stories from missions in the UK waters.
