Aquatic World Awareness and Responsibility = AWARE
Over two decades ago a group of PADI environmental advocates came to realize that the number and severity of threats being faced by the underwater world were becoming ever more dire. In an attempt to reverse this growing problem, the group founded Project AWARE.
Make a difference - join Project AWARE 2021
Project AWARE, a non-profit organization, empowers each and every scuba-diver involved in diving, whether on a professional level or recreationally, and leverages the scuba-dive community's sheer numbers in order to make a change.
Marine debris is an ever-growing problem
Project AWARE does this by educating divers and water enthusiasts about the global ocean issues and by encouraging participation in underwater conservation activities. Project AWARE's two main focal points are:
Our sharks are in decline. Stop the greed. Stop the madness.
1. Species decline, particularly that of our sharks
2. Marine debris
Join us. Join Project AWARE!
Since Project AWARE's founding, more than 1000 dive operators and countless dive volunteers have committed to marine protection efforts worldwide.
