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.
