Target demographics: protect the ocean and the communities who depend on it

Direct beneficiaries per year: remove over 95,000 lbs of devastating debris from underwater environments.

Geographic areas served: more than 180 countries

Programs: We’re focused on two major ocean issues –Sharks in Peril and Marine Debris, or trash in our ocean. Truly, there are many conservation issues converging on our ocean planet at once, but we’re concentrating on these serious problems where scuba divers are uniquely positioned to directly and positively affect real, long-term change in these two areas.

Mission:
Project AWARE Foundation mobilizes the world’s divers into a global force to protect our ocean planet. We’re focusing in on two major ocean issues –Sharks in Peril and Marine Debris, or trash in our ocean. Truly, there are many conservation issues converging on our ocean planet at once, but we’re concentrating on these serious problems where scuba divers are uniquely positioned to directly and positively affect real, long-term change in these two areas. We’re ocean heroes numbering in the millions across the globe.
Results:
From supporting grass roots Ocean Action Projects to stopping marine debris via your Dive Against Debris surveys and securing shark conservation measures globally, Project AWARE is at the forefront of marine protection.

What’s more, Project AWARE supports divers with the tools and resources to join in campaigns and activities that contribute to advancing the health of the ocean for future generations.

We’ve removed millions of cigarette butts from the ocean floor and way too many toilets to mention. We’ve rescued hundreds of entangled sea turtles, dolphins and sharks – one by one - setting them free from discarded fishing gear. We’ve pounded the pavement and flooded the halls of local governments, insisting on better protections for manta rays, hammerheads and sawfish. We’ve made history by helping create one of the world's largest marine reserve in Australia.

On the front lines, partnering with ocean heroes in all corners of the globe, we work every day to make the ocean healthier, more alive.
