Project AWARE Specialist

Project AWARE Specialty with ACADEMY OF SCUBA

The underwater world needs heroes. You can be one of them by championing the causes of the world’s most fragile and important aquatic ecosystems.

The Fun Part

You can make a difference. 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. Learn about some of the most pressing problems facing these vulnerable environments and everyday actions you can take to help conserve them. It’s informative, interesting and most importantly, you learn how to make a difference. Anyone who has an interest in the aquatic world should take this course. There are no prerequisites, age restrictions or water sessions required for this non-diving specialty.
