Our Conservation Blueprint

There are two critical focus areas for Project AWARE: Community and Policy. When both are working together, we are driving towards our mission and vision. Below is a visual representation of our organization’s blueprint.

Our Priorities

We advance programs that:

  1. Address the greatest threats facing the ocean. Those threats must be grounded in sound science and
  2. Fulfill the interests and needs of our community with both fins on and fins off.
Our Current Focus Areas

Project AWARE develops actions under our Clean Ocean and Healthy Ocean programs each year. In 2018, we will be supporting our community and advancing policies on Plastic Debris and Sharks & Rays.

See our Clean and Healthy Ocean pages for more information.
