Kick off your #MyOceanChallenge this Endangered Species Day

Are you up for a challenge? Join the Endangered Species Day 2015 celebration by taking the My Ocean Challenge, Project AWARE’s new, exciting way to take action for ocean protection.

Endangered Species Day - My Ocean Challenge

The challenges facing endangered marine species, big and small, have never been more pressing. With My Ocean Challenge, you can help tackle two of the biggest challenges faced by our ocean: marine debris and over-exploitation of sharks and rays.

Taking the My Ocean Challenge is a great way to raise awareness about endangered marine species and raise funds critical to protecting our ocean and its wildlife.

From running a marathon to baking cakes, participating in a sponsored abseil event or donating your birthday, the funds raised through your My Ocean Challenge fuel the grassroots action and policy change necessary to ensure a clean, healthy ocean planet for us today and for future generations.

On Endangered Species Day, May 15 – or starting any day you choose – go to projectaware.org/fundraise to kick off your My Ocean Challenge. A bike ride, skydive or taking part in a sponsored bungee jump – the possibilities are endless! My Ocean Challenge is all about challenging yourself to help protect the ocean. The only limit is your imagination!

Our ocean is facing tough challenges. Your challenge this Endangered Species Day and beyond: Fundraise for its protection.
