Since Project AWARE started in 1992 as a marine conservation nonprofit organisation, many PADI divers have shown their support for ocean protection when completing a PADI training course by making a small donation to receive the Project AWARE version of their PADI certification card.
In 2016, as PADI celebrates its 50th Anniversary and long-term commitment to teaching divers the importance of protecting fragile aquatic ecosystems, you can join in the celebrations by taking action with Project AWARE, PADI’s preferred environmental partner. We are prouder of what Project AWARE has achieved thanks to the support of its growing movement of divers protecting the ocean one dive at a time.
- Celebrate 50 Years of PADI and show off your support for ocean protection, visit www.padi.com to request a replacement card and encourage your student divers to choose the Project AWARE Limited Edition PADI cards.
- Show off your support on Twitter and Instagram: Share the Project AWARE version of your PADI card with the hashtags #MyPADI #MyOcean
Also available in 2016 is a special Project AWARE limited edition PADI Freediver card only available if you complete a PADI Freediver™ Course and the Project AWARE Manta Ray PADI card. All card choices are subject to stock availability.
