Being an active PADI® Dive Professional often leads to a life of travel, adventure and so much more. We are committed to connecting your passion for adventure with the purpose of marine conservation to create lasting change for the ocean.

In 2018, our Dive Against Debris® citizen science programme hit a significant milestone - one million pieces of debris removed and reported from the ocean. Your support is needed to ensure the next million is reached by end of 2020.  Want to join the #NextMillion2020 adventure?

“There are so many significant problems facing mankind, but as divers this is truly
our cause. If scuba divers do not take an active role in preserving the aquatic
realm, who will?”
-         John Cronin, PADI Co-Founder

FACT: Your support contributed to developing the world’s first and only marine debris database with more than one million pieces of debris already removed and reported from underwater environments.

FACT: Using Project AWARE’s unique conservation tools, PADI Members have taught and continue to teach ocean protection to scuba divers, children, families and friends in local communities around the world, inspiring stewards for the ocean.

The Ocean as it Should Be

The Whale Shark image featured on the new 2019 PADI limited edition card supporting Project AWARE’s conservation work captures the ocean as it should be: clean, healthy, thriving with abundant marine life. But don’t get mistaken! The ocean is in trouble and needs your renewed support! The new card is available to PADI Pros from October 2018 and will be available to student divers throughout 2019 when it launches in January. When you choose the Project AWARE version of your PADI Membership card and donate with your PADI renewal today you are driving global ocean protection. 100% of your donation to Project AWARE supports ocean protection.

This PADI Member Renewal season celebrate the ocean as it should be and support Project AWARE’s #NextMillion2020 goal for a clean and healthy ocean. Join the adventure!
