Project AWARE Speciality

Project AWARE’s philosophy is to mobilize a global force of scuba divers and water enthusiasts who care about protecting the world’s water resources and choose to make a difference – one dive at a time.

 

By earning the Project AWARE Specialist certification, you’ll be aware of the most pressing problems facing vulnerable aquatic environments and know what everyday actions you can take to help protect them.

 

What Will You Learn?

The Project AWARE programme is designed to familiarise divers, and non divers, with the plight of the world's aquatic systems.  It describes what we can do to protect aquatic resources and looks at various issues including the importance of coastal ecosystems, concerns of fishing and marine pollution.
