The search is on. Project AWARE Foundation is looking for innovative and results-driven projects to address two key focus areas: tackling marine debris problems and protecting critical shark and ray species.
With increasing threats facing our ocean planet, working globally and acting locally has never been so important. To empower ocean communities to take local conservation actions to a whole new level of change, Project AWARE launched the Ocean Action Project on June 5, 2012.
The new Ocean Action Project supports local ocean conservation initiatives that are action-oriented, measurable, with an approach for change.
To view the Ocean Action Project guidelines and application, visit www.projectaware.org/OceanActionProject. Completed applications must be received by Project AWARE by August 1, 2012. Project AWARE will select the most promising project proposals and let the supporters and community cast the final vote this August. Get involved today!
