Who Protects the Ocean Planet?

Project AWARE News

As of the DEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, 38 new 100% AWARE partners do! Many dive professionals support ocean protection but 100% AWARE dive centers and instructors are also committed to ocean protection in an extra special way. They make a donation on behalf of their dive students for each certification – all to support a clean, healthy ocean planet. 

Before you dive in, find your nearest 100% AWARE Dive Center today. 100% AWARE partners make a big difference by supporting critical campaigns to tackle marine debris issues and protect the world’s most vulnerable shark and ray species.

“Project AWARE could not secure critical ocean victories without a strong network of passionate industry professionals like our 100% AWARE partners,” said Project AWARE’s Associate Director, Tiffany Leite. “Their support is the fuel needed to continue pushing for strong protections for vulnerable and endangered species globally.” 

Thank you to our newest 100% AWARE partners!
