TakePart Mag Shares ODA's Mission to Eradicate Ghost Gear

Recently, the TakePart (online magazine) team joined our ODA Dive & Boat Crew on a marine debris removal outing.

We journeyed to the sunken wreck African Queen and captured some great footage of the Dive Team removing deadly ghost nets and releasing live animals.

The culminated footage makes a great 3-minute watch, and the article is thorough and well-researched on the wide-ranging aspects of the marine debris issue.
