Join us for AWARE Week and take action for the ocean!
In celebration of the ocean, the first ever AWARE Week is taking place around the world September 15-23, 2018. Aimed at empowering more divers to look after the underwater world, a full week of conservation activities and actions will take place.
Blue Planet has teamed up with Project AWARE and PADI to host a week full of activities for divers and other ocean-lovers in DC. From AWARE courses focused on tackling ocean pollution, to creating awareness for vulnerable shark and ray species, to empowering local communities to take positive actions for the protection of fragile aquatic environments, all are welcome — fins on and fins off.
