PROJECT AWARE

Mission/Aim

We believe in a future where the ocean no longer needs protecting. We exist to connect the passion for ocean adventure with the purpose of marine conservation.”

 

How?

Using the United Nations Sustainable Development as a guideline for their work, Project AWARE focuses their work on two critical areas: Community and Policy to work towards their mission. In practice, this means running campaigns such as “Dive against Debris”, bringing together communities and encouraging them to take action by providing them with conservation tools, organising events around their cause, fundraising, petitions, donate options, and currently also offering an online teaching hub. Additionally, Project AWARE works to improve legislation and policy-making around marine conservation by working alongside businesses, NGOs and governments to promote long-term waste management policies at all levels of government.
