A professional PADI diver for over 35 years and an educator at Georgia Tech University in the United States for 34 years, Jim Consuegra is an ardent ocean activist. Throughout his diving and university teaching career, Jim has been a vocal advocate for the protection of our ocean and all marine creatures, teaching students and divers to become active participants in global efforts to protect the environment. It was Nelson Mandela who said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world” – an ideal that Jim Consuegra truly embodies.

If our past two decades of conservation have taught us anything, it’s that Project AWARE divers are true leaders in ocean protection! We’re a growing movement of marine activists numbering in millions across the globe, making a lasting positive impact for our ocean planet.
