Hundreds of volunteers across the globe put underwater environments on the Earth Day map during Dive for Earth Day the week of 22 April. Project AWARE partnered with more than 300 dive operators to organize activities with one common theme – protecting our ocean planet and creating awareness.
Thanks to all the dive centers, resorts, organizers and volunteers who dedicated their time to a range of conservation activities including coral reef monitoring, underwater cleanups, fish surveys, AWARE Kids activities and more.
About Dive for Earth Day
Earth Day raises environmental awareness on a global scale. Since the 30th anniversary of Earth Day in 2000, Project AWARE has helped divers put aquatic issues on the Earth Day map. Thousands of diver volunteers in more than 115 countries have helped protect underwater environments and educate local communities for Project AWARE's Dive for Earth Day.
