The Project AWARE Foundation is a growing movement of scuba divers protecting the ocean planet – one dive at a time.
They focus on two major ocean issues –Sharks in Peril and Marine Debris, or trash in our ocean. Truly, there are many conservation issues converging on our ocean planet at once, but they are concentrating on these two serious problems where scuba divers are uniquely positioned to directly and positively affect real, long-term change.
Be part of the Project AWARE global movement! Take action by creating or joining a Dive for Debris event or support or create your own fundraising event! For further information visit the Project AWARE Action Zone!
