Project AWARE Foundation is the dive industry’s leading non-profit environmental organisation.
Project AWARE Foundation conserves underwater environments through education, advocacy and action.
We work in partnership with divers and water enthusiasts to combat challenges facing underwater environments. We involve these volunteers in hands-on environmental activities like International Cleanup Day and The International Whale Shark Project.
Project AWARE inspires conservation by incorporating its messages in dive training materials and creating awareness and education campaigns such as Protect the Sharks, Protect the Living Reef and AWARE Kids to name just a few.
Because scuba divers have a unique perspective of the underwater world, we see the crisis facing our underwater environments.
In 1989, PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) developed the A.W.A.R.E. philosophy – Aquatic World Awareness, Responsibility and Education – to stress divers’ roles in conserving these environments and created a group of effective environmental advocates.
