About the Movement
Project AWARE Foundation is a growing movement of scuba divers protecting the ocean planet – one dive at a time.
Over the past two decades of underwater conservation we’ve learned that divers are true leaders in ocean protection. We’re ocean heroes numbering in the millions across the globe. We believe together our actions will make a huge impact and will help to rescue the ocean.
With new programs and more online resources than ever before, Project AWARE supports an unprecedented global movement of divers acting in their own communities to protect oceans and implement lasting change.
We’re focusing in on two major ocean issues –Sharks in Peril and Marine Debris, or trash in our ocean. Truly, there are many conservation issues converging on our ocean planet at once, but we’re concentrating on these serious problems where scuba divers are uniquely positioned to directly and positively affect real, long-term change in these two areas.
Together, we’re re-thinking what’s possible and sharing a positive vision for our ocean future. Get ready for the work ahead by joining the movement of thousands of divers to protect our ocean planet.

The Plastic Ocean Project in the United States of America is one of Project AWARE's Ocean Action Project winners. Aimed at tackling marine debris and raising awareness about plastics in particular, the Plastic Ocean Project has been touring around schools in Pennsylvania and New Jersey with their art exhibit "What Goes Around Comes Around". The display is made up of plastics collected from the 3 of the 5 gyres - check out what they've been up to and show your support if they come to an area near you. Great work guys!
