With a network of 6,600 dive centers and resorts,128,000 professional members and over 29 million certified divers to date, we have a tremendous opportunity to mobilize millions of PADI Torchbearers to save the ocean.
In our mission to safeguard our blue planet, the PADI community with PADI AWARE Foundation is turning the tide on ocean change, but this is just the beginning.
Through our efforts, we have:
Collected and documented 2 million pieces of marine debris to affect policy change for ocean protection
Aided over 10,000 entangled marine animals
Helped protect 51 shark and ray species: Hammerhead Shark, Mako Shark, Whale Shark, Manta Ray, Guitarfish and more
Established 467 Adopt The Blue sites, the world’s largest network of underwater sites for conservation action
28 million divers can't be wrong...
