Divers have a one-of-a-kind relationship with the underwater world. If you’ve been transformed by a close encounter with a shark
or by coral reefs teeming with life, then you and Project AWARE are kindred spirits.
You may know about other nonprofits that work on ocean health. But, fins on or off, it’s Project AWARE, our partner in ocean protection, that captures the hearts and minds of divers around the world. Here’s why their global movement of divers work together to remove underwater trash that’s killing sea life and putting human health at risk. They work with groups like Global Ghost Gear Initiative to hold governments accountable for pollution and overfishing. Project AWARE listens to and supports the dive community. In 2017, they heard from more than 3000 divers about how to plan their next move for ocean protection.
