Project AWARE Foundation conserves underwater environments through education, advocacy and action. The dive industry's leading nonprofit environmental organization. Offices in the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Switzerland and Japan combine efforts to protect aquatic resources in 175 countries around the world. 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 also inspires conservation by incorporating its messages in dive training materials as well as creating awareness and education campaigns like Protect the Sharks, Protect the Living Reef and AWARE Kids. The grant program funds grass-roots environmental projects that address key foundation focus areas, volunteer-supported community activism and research with direct contributions made by people like you.
