PADI AWARE Foundation

Three Decades of Ocean Conservation

Mission and Impact

Our mission to ‘Drive local action for global ocean conservation’ is carried out through citizen science, public policy, and community grants. For over 30 years, PADI and AWARE have built a truly unique voice for the protection of the underwater world. Together, we have set ambitious ocean conservation targets through a shared Blueprint for Ocean Action that provides the framework to tackle key threats to the ocean and create ocean change in our dive communities around the world.

PADI AWARE Charity Gear

Help save our oceans with sustainable, eco-friendly gear that nurtures our blue planet. 20% of proceeds fund PADI AWARE Foundation’s mission to drive local action for global ocean conservation and create a balance between humanity and the ocean. 

Our Conservation Strategy

PADI AWARE conservation programs address the key threats facing the marine environment, advance the PADI Blueprint for Ocean Action, support the implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and engage the PADI Torchbearer Community to create ocean change.
