What is a Finathon®? Whatever you want it to be!

From climbing mountains to building sandcastles, Finathon is all about doing whatever inspires you to fundraise for ocean protection. Project AWARE’s Finathon is the ultimate way divers can support ocean protection – fins on and off.

As divers, we know that tackling two of the biggest threats facing our ocean – marine debris and over-exploitation of shark and ray species – is a real challenge. Finathon brings the dive community together to raise critical funds and awareness for the plight of our ocean and its wildlife.

Ocean protection depends on our actions, large and small. Now, more than ever before, divers are taking a stand for conservation. Take part in a Finathon challenge of your choice to help Project AWARE:

  • Fight to stop the ugly journey of our trash
  • Insist on full protections for the most vulnerable shark and ray species
  • Negotiate policies that ensure a brighter future for our ocean and its wildlife

Thank you for supporting ocean protection through the Finathon. It fuels grassroots activities and policy change in two areas - Marine Debris and Sharks in Peril - necessary to ensure a clean, healthy ocean planet today and in the future.

Dive deep for ocean protection, create your fundraising page today and we'll be in touch every step of the way to ensure your action is a success!

Sandcastle Competition Inspires Marine Protection

“I have always felt at home near the sea. It’s not only my office, it’s also where I feel simultaneously most at peace and most terrified.” Though she’d never even thought about becoming a scuba diver until a friend invited her to travel to Egypt for an open water diving course, it was inevitable that Jo Roberts – a self-proclaimed ‘water baby’ – would build a life for herself grounded in...

Why I fundraise for Project AWARE
“Don’t be a litter bug” was something my mother said that piqued my curiosity when I was four years old. I don’t remember her response but whatever it was, it wasn’t a good enough explanation and I wanted to find out more for myself. So much so that I stole a cracker wrapper from the trash can and snuck out the house to release that plastic wrap into the world to see what would happen. As I...
