PADI AWARE Foundation


PADI AWARE FoundationTM is a non-profit public charity that drives local action for global ocean conservation. Backed by the power of the PADI® brand and supported by the world’s largest global network of 6,600 dive centers and resorts and more than 128,000 professional members worldwide, PADI AWARE Foundation leverages the collective influence of divers and the dive industry to address key threats facing the marine environment including climate change, marine habitat loss and vulnerable species protection. Our Programs: 1) address the key threats facing the marine environment; 2) advance the implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals; and 3) engage ocean activists to take action above and below the water. We are guided by our mission and our Blueprint for Ocean Action driving underwater citizen science, public policy and education.
