Project AWARE Shark Conservation Course

Love sharks? Scared of sharks? Or do you just want to know more about them? Sharks are an essential part of a healthy ocean. The Project AWARE Shark Conservation course explores why they are vulnerable, the importance of a healthy shark population, managing threats and how to take action to protect them. You’ll discover the value of sharks to marine ecosystems and economies. You’ll learn more about the causes of declining shark populations and the actions you can take to become a knowledgeable and passionate shark defender. By being informed, you can dispel misconceptions and act to protect sharks. Sharks need you!

NOTE: To gain the PADI certification for this course you will need to complete 2 dives with us in the future. You can do the dives in Cabo or on any of our trips. There is also an option to take the theory portion of this course only to receive a certificate, but you will not receive a certification card unless you complete the mandatory dives later.
