Project AWARE, dive business owners and dive supporters united as the voice of the dive community in Bangkok, Thailand at the sixteenth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to CITES (CITES CoP16). On 1 March, before the meeting opened, we made our message loud and clear – healthy shark and ray populations are priceless.
With Earth Day, 22nd April fast approaching, the Big Shark Shout Out is in full swing and it's louder, and madder, than ever before!
We love sharks - as divers we appreciate their beauty, respect their power and become mesmerised when we catch a glimpse underwater. We're so into sharks one could say, we are completely mad about them. In fact we're Shark Raving Mad to be precise.
Bali Crystal Diver's are hosting a special Dinner for Diver's event where we will be celebrating collecting over 1000 signatures for Project Aware's Give Sharks a Fighting Chance campaign!
We will be offering a 50% discount on Dinner for all Divers who arrive with their Certification Cards between 6pm and 8pm; we will also be collecting donations for Project Aware Shark conservation on the night!
We've taken the facts and the stats so you can follow the journey of rubbish from in land right out to our ocean. Follow The Ugly Journey of our Trash to learn how different kinds of debris threaten marine life.
No one knows for sure but scientists think over six million tons of marine debris may be entering our ocean every year. One of the reasons Project AWARE is collecting marine debris data from divers is to help build a clear picture of the underwater trash that threatens ocean life. With this knowledge, we can make more effective decisions when it comes to waste management policies.
