Project AWARE News

As 2016 draws to a close, we’d like to thank all of our friends, partners, and sponsors for their contributions to making ocean protection a reality.  Your continued support fuels our efforts across the globe to address two major ocean challenges – marine debris and over-exploitation of shark and ray species.

Together, we work to protect the ocean each and every day! To thank you for everything you do to protect the ocean, we created this short video message ...

With your support we empower thousands of divers in more than 180 countries by providing them with the tools, resources and inspiration to take actions – large and small – that contribute to advancing the health of the ocean.

With your support, we bring your unique underwater perspective and represents your voice, the voice of the dive community, at key ocean conservation fora such as CITES CoP17 where earlier this year we successfully advocated for increased protection for 13 shark and ray species.

Thank you for helping us:

  • Remove 626,237 marine debris items from the ocean
  • Survey more than 200 dive sites through Dive Against Debris™, Project AWARE’s flagship citizen science program
  • Advocate for science-based shark and ray conservation efforts
  • Empower our growing community to be agents of positive change for the ocean

Thank you for making ocean protection possible in 2016 and beyond!
