Welcome to My Ocean, Project AWARE’s online environmental community of ocean advocates working together for ocean protection. Ready to make an impact? Then dive in.

Project AWARE Community

My Ocean is a growing community of ocean activists. We remove debris. We fundraise. We speak out for sharks and rays. And we mobilize our local community into action.

At Project AWARE, we believe in the power of our movement to create a global culture that nurtures and sustains a thriving, vibrant ocean. That's why we're excited to have you join our global community.

Your actions – big or small – when joined with this network of like-minded supporters, can make a big difference. Take your local conservation actions to a whole new level of change. 

Share Your Story of Change. Join My Ocean.

My Ocean is your platform. It's your story. Share with our community how you ignite positive change.  Have you led a local clean up effort? Have you written to your local politician asking them to increase protections for vulnerable marine species? Have you visited your local school to tell kids about marine debris? Whatever your story, add your photos, videos, and action for others to see and be inspired. Create your account.

Find & Create Events & Actions Near You

From Dive Against Debris® surveys to community events and activities, the My Ocean community comes together to protect our ocean. You can find or create your own local action. All actions are added to our Action Map for others to see.

Report Debris

A clean, healthy ocean is a happy ocean. You can use your unique scuba skills and join citizen scientists everywhere who remove, record and report marine debris found under the ocean waves. The data you collect helps convince individuals, governments, and businesses to take action on trash. You'll need a My Ocean account to log your rubbish so create your account today.

Take the Pledge

Join thousands of scuba divers everywhere who pledge to live and dive by our eco code of conduct. This goes way beyond a look don't touch ethos. We're talking about the impact you have on the choices you make every day and every dive. Take the pledge today.
