So far, more than 1,500 people have set up My Ocean profiles on ProjectAWARE.org. When we first launched the new website, we kept our eyes peeled for 10 of the most complete and inspiring profiles to feature on our blog. The ten profiles listed below have shown us that underwater conservation is a big part of their diving experience. These 10 profiles feature stories of ocean conservation action from around the planet.
I am loving the Project AWARE Trash is Treasure campaign and I'm pledging that from tomorrow I will endeavor to recover trash on every dive for the rest of the month AND on days when I am not diving I will go and clean up the beach! I can't arrange clean ups this month as we are so busy on the island but I am taking the Project AWARE slogan of One Dive At A Time to heart - if any one is reading this - why not do the same!!!?? Let's clean our seas and favorite dive spots!!!
Our ocean's sharks have a new champion and his name is Bali B. He happens to be a hero in the Lego universe and here, at Project AWARE, we're big fans of his anti-finning moves.
We recently discovered this Youtube video in support of our Sharks in Peril campaign. According to the animators who created Bali B’s adventure, it was made to "involve kids and bring a different light to the anti-finning campaign."
Come along to the PADI Booth the Diving Resort Travel Expo. We'll be there talking sharks and marine debris. Find out what you can do to support healthy shark populations plus how you can get involved in the new Project AWARE Dive Against Debris Program.
I've known about Project AWARE for quite a while, even two weeks ago when I wasn't qualified, and I've always wanted to be a part of it. Now I'm a member, and I have my own 'My Ocean' page, I can see what AWARE are doing for the ocean, and how I can be a part of it.
It’s been 21 years since Project AWARE first began. The world of scuba diving was much different then. And so were the ways of conservation. We were still learning about the issues and educating ourselves on sustainable practices underwater.
As the AWARE mission, logo and strategies have evolved over the years, so have the environmental priorities of the world. And together, we step up our efforts for the ocean wherever they’re needed most. Now, we’re prioritizing shark protection and working to eliminate marine debris from the world’s ocean.
