Project AWARE® Specialties

The Project AWARE® Foundation conserves underwater environments through education, advocacy and action.

Conservation begins with understanding the need to protect waters necessary for life. Each year Project AWARE® introduces a new public awareness and education campaign to address environmental issues and involve individuals in solutions.
