We are committed to helping people connect to the life in our oceans and foster awareness of the threats facing this globally essential ecosystem. Blue Planet works closely with environmental organizations and local communities to foster sustainability. We recognize that our oceans are being ravaged by pollution, coastal development, over-fishing and global warming and believe that active, informed divers can help restore the health of our planet’s ocean.
Divers are in a unique position; we witness firsthand the devastating effects of pollution, climate change, and overfishing. We therefore have a responsibility to speak out and take action to stop the damage when possible and follow safe, responsible diving practices.
Join us by Taking Action, Attending Our Event Series, or Taking a Project AWARE Class.
