You could say we’re one year old today (even though technically, we’re nearing 20 as a registered nonprofit). But one year ago, on 8 June 2011, Project AWARE Foundation refocused and relaunched our commitment to ocean protection. 8 June is also World Ocean Day - a time when AWARE divers around the world take action and celebrate the ocean.
