Conservation & Community
Project AWARE is a global movement for ocean protection powered by a community of adventurers. They connect the passion for ocean adventure with the purpose of marine conservation to create lasting change.
Supported by this growing movement, Project AWARE envision a world where the ocean doesn’t need protecting, and their local actions collectively protect the most vulnerable marine species and decrease pollution. Working together for a clean, healthy ocean – and having fun doing it!
