Please follow the link to help me raise funds for such a great cause. As divers we know how bad it can be when you come across broken bottles, entangled aquatic life, plastic bags etc. There are millions of divers around the world who know what I'm saying. All I'm asking for is $1AUS from each person and I would have smashed my part of the fundraising.

We reached a massive milestone during April’s Big Shark Shout Out and we couldn’t be more thrilled. Hundreds of supporters shouted for sharks and took AWARE's shark petition to the streets helping reach an impressive total of 100,000 signatures. These signatures give a stronger, united voice to push for trade protection for the world's most vulnerable shark species.

Come along and help out with this years big lake clean up event.  Plenty to do for divers and non-divers.  There will be a raffle, games, activities and trade stands.  Last years event was great fun and a big success. As well as helping to clear the lake and surrounding area we also hope to raise lots of money for Project Aware. Something all the family can take part in, so come along, muck in and meet new friends and maybe win yourself a prize!  This 2 day event will be taking place on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th September 2011.

Over the past two decades of underwater conservation we've learned that divers are true leaders in ocean protection. We're ocean heroes numbering in the millions across the globe. We believe together our actions will make a huge impact and will help to rescue the ocean.
