Here are three top reasons why we’re gaga over sharks:

1. Sharks are critical to the health of our ocean planet.

2. We’re fishing them to extinction (cue the alarm bells!)

3. Divers, who are some of sharks’ closest friends, can help save them.

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."
