Thank you Exmouth and Coral Bay, Western Australia for hosting the first Manta Ray Black Tie Ball in support of Project AWARE. Congratulations and countless thanks to Diana Belton and Alice Martino for organising this amazing event. This incredible duo went above and beyond to create a truly memorable evening for everyone to enjoy. It’s the magic of swimming with manta rays that inspired Diana and Alice to organise the event which raised an amazing AUD $16,000.
The Brighton Dive Centre are organising a charity Christmas dive to raise money for the Project Aware foundation. Our divers are going against the conventional route of dressing as Santa's and instead we are having a Mother Nature theme. Come along and join in the fun if you're nearby! Hope to see you there!

Dive DownBelow, Sabah, Malaysia is FINatical about sharks and swimming to end finning this November.
On Sunday, 4 November 2012, Downbelow is hosting a Finathon – a 1km ‘fun swim’ – at our PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre in order to raise awareness of the plight of sharks and funds for Project AWARE who is fighting for legislation to give sharks a fighting chance.
Are you and your friends FINatical about Sharks? Project AWARE & PADI Staff are swimming 25 kilometers to end shark finning for Project AWARE’s first Finathon™! The clock’s ticking for vanishing shark species. You can join the race to protect them. Join our Finathon™ team, seek sponsorship and let the global race to end shark finning begin.
A local fundraiser's focus was to help put a stop to the cruel practice of "finning," which is depleting the world's shark population.
Some larger species of sharks have rows upon rows of razor sharp teeth designed for ripping and tearing flesh, can smell one drop of blood in a million drops of water, and can dislocate and protrude its upper jaw to help it grab and hang onto prey.
