Project AWARE News
Pledge your ongoing commitment to ocean protection and go 100% AWARE in 2012.Project AWARE is launching a new partnership programme to help PADI Dive Centres integrate ocean protection priorities into their business and fund critical conservation initiatives at the same time. Beginning January 2012, dive centres and resorts taking part in the programme will ensure all of their student divers receive the Project AWARE version of their PADI certification card. 100% AWARE donations will target protection for the world’s most threatened shark species and the removal and prevention of marine debris from treasured underwater environments. Together we can make ocean protection a reality.
- Less than 1% of our ocean is protected.
- 7% of all PADI divers choose to support ocean protection initiatives by making a minimum donation to receive the Project AWARE version of their PADI certification card.
- AWARE cards are our largest fundraising effort.
