CONSERVATION

At the Ocean Film Festival World Tour we are proud to work with local conservation partners to help support the important work they do keep our oceans clean and safe. In 2020 we are proud to work with the following ocean conservation organisations:

Project AWARE Foundation is a global movement for ocean protection powered by a community of adventurers. With a mission to connect the passion for ocean adventure with the purpose of marine conservation, Project AWARE brings together a dedicated team of individuals around the world who share a passion for ocean protection and adventure to secure real and direct environmental victories. Project AWARE is a registered non-profit organization with offices in Australia, UK and USA.
