Project AWARE Foundation

Divers Conserving Underwater Environments

Project AWARE Foundation are calling all supporters and PADI members to support underwater conservation. Why? 100,000 marine mammals including dolphins, whales, seals and sea turtles choke or get tangled in debris every year. And 86 percent of all sea turtles are affected by marine debris.

Can you consider making a gift of $25? All donations will be put to work straight away to support grassroots projects, underwater cleanups and marine species protection.

How will the funds be used?

Thanks to your generosity, Project AWARE has spearheaded thousands of underwater cleanups each year to address the devastating impact of marine debris. Additionally we have funded 40 projects in 2009 including loggerhead sea turtle research in the Eastern Indian Ocean, climate change impacts on Hawksbill turtles in Australia and tracking of wild breeding female Dugongs.

Key Areas of Expenditure

  • Coral reef monitoring and ongoing advocacy
  • Shark protection and research
  • Underwater and shoreline cleanups worldwide
  • Improved resource management and sustainable ecosystems
  • Education and training for volunteer divers and AWARE Kids
