If you love to spend your time beneath the surface of the ocean, you have probably seen some cool animals and plants during your dives. Earthdive is a program to collect the observations you make during your SCUBA dives or snorkelling adventures. The information you provide can help scientists to assess the state of your favourite ecosystem and contribute to what we know about the health of the world’s oceans.

Citizen scientist divers are already contributing the information from their dive logs in more than 118 countries around the world. You can see their observations and contribute your own dive results at their website.
