Team Ninja Joins Project Aware’s #TeamOcean Challenge Fundraising for Ocean Protection

At Dive Ninja Expeditions we have always been passionate about ocean protection. We’re excited to join thousands of adventurers around the world taking action through the Team Ocean Challenge, the ultimate way to raise funds to support the work of a global marine conservation non-profit organization close to our hearts: Project AWARE.

Our Team Ocean Challenge takes a multi-faceted approach to raise awareness and much needed funds for the plight of the ocean and its wildlife. To kick off World Endangered Species day, on May 18th, 2018, we are launching our Team Ocean Ninja fundraiser. We’ve teamed up with the amazing underwater photographer David Valencia and the awesome team at Zero Waste Los Cabos to help raise funds. We’re calling on all friends, families, fellow divers and instructors, guests and schools to join our fundraiser and be champions for our ocean. You can also help out by joining our team at this link ( and sharing the page! It’s an exciting and easy way to help raise awareness for this massively important cause.

From day 1 ocean conservation has been a massive driver and passion for Dive Ninjas. It’s intertwined in everything we do. From our conservation-centered, citizen science expeditions to trying to teach every guest that walks through our doors how they can help out. The oceans are our life line, and they need our help“,  says Jay Clue, Team Leader at Dive Ninja Expeditions. In the words of the great Sylvia Earle, ‘We need to respect the oceans and protect them as if our lives depended on it, because they do’.

 Ocean protection depends on all our actions, large and small. Now, more than ever before, passionate change makers across the world are taking a stand for conservation. Our fundraising challenge helps Project AWARE’s targeted marine debris work. Pollution is one of the overarching stressors currently impacting the health of our ocean and it affects us all. Marine debris is one of the biggest sources of pollution and it’s believed that over 800 different species have been impacted by it through ingestion or entanglement.

By donating to Project AWARE’s #TeamOcean Challenge you’re taking a stand on critical ocean issues and supporting work to tackle the issues at a national and international level in order to:

  • Reduce the amount of pollution in the ocean
  • Save marine life from the detrimental impacts of pollution
  • Engage divers in education and conservation actions worldwide.
  • Share the underwater impacts of pollution through data collection and reporting to influence policy

Taking action and fundraising for ocean protection has never been so important! Our trash underwater poses a serious threat to endangered marine species and damages vital underwater habitats such as coral reefs and seagrass beds.

For over 25 years, Project AWARE has fueled grassroots activities and policy change necessary to ensure a clean, healthy ocean planet today and for future generations. The challenges for the future of our ocean are vast but our community is taking a stand for ocean protection. If you are passionate about the ocean and its wildlife please join us and support ocean protection with us.

Our local Team Ocean Ninja Challenge begins today in commemoration of World Endangered Species day! Visit to donate, join our team, and to follow our progress. No donation is too small. Plus you can help us just by sharing our link and posts to your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and anywhere else!

In the coming weeks we will be also launching a new conservation section of our website with tons of free information on conservation, marine species, and how you can easily get involved even in your own backyard. Plus, we are also working on a series of free conservation talks and events in our beautiful home of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico that we are super excited about. Make sure to jump on our mailing list or follow us on Facebook to stay informed soon as we release the details!

Interested in more information on how you can help out? Give us a shout! Team Ninja will gladly jump on a call or chat to help point you in the right direction.
