In 2019, we will be supporting our community and advancing policies on Plastic Debris and Sharks & Rays. Project AWARE®, a registered nonprofit organization, is 27 years old and we’re just getting started. We’ve experienced a whirlwind of growth, innovation, engagement and impact in the past quarter of a century – transforming from an environmental ethic created by PADI® in 1989, to a separate nonprofit organization with global reach and a passionate community dedicated to protecting our ocean.
Over the years, Project AWARE has stayed at the forefront of emerging ocean issues and pressing global challenges. Take a trip down memory lane. Join us in reflecting back on just a few of our key milestones from the last quarter of a century. These are your victories and Project AWARE is your story. Today, Project AWARE is a global movement for ocean protection powered by a community of adventurers. We connect the passion for ocean adventure with the purpose of marine conservation to create lasting change.
Supported by this growing movement, we envision a world where the ocean doesn’t need protecting. Our local actions collectively protect the most vulnerable marine species and decrease pollution. We work together for a clean, healthy ocean – and we have fun doing it!
