EVENT DATE: Oct 09, 2016

THE STORY:

Fundraising for Ocean Protection.

Healthy Oceans Need Healthy Shark and Ray Populations.

Project AWARE's Bank of America Chicago Marathon Team are fundraising for ocean protection to help secure a brighter future for declining shark and ray populations, and protect them from unsustainable trade.

Ocean protection depends on all of our actions, large and small.

Project AWARE supporters 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, one that we must address together.

The Project AWARE marathon team has come together to raise funds and awareness for the plight of our ocean and its wildlife.

Funds raised by the marathon team supports Project AWARE’s conservation work and fuels the grassroots action and policy change necessary to ensure a clean, healthy ocean planet for us today and for future generations.

Supporting Project AWARE's Bank of America Chicago Marathon Team helps Project AWARE:

• Fight to stop the Ugly Journey of our Trash A staggering 250 million metric tons of plastic could make its way to the ocean in the next 10 years. Project AWARE collects marine debris data from divers through its flagship citizen science program, Dive Against Debris™, to help build a clearer picture of the underwater trash that threatens ocean life. With this knowledge, we can help inform community action, identify local decisions, and influence change at all levels. Project AWARE is working with dive volunteers year-round to remove and report trash from underwater environments and pushes for policy changes leading to marine debris prevention at national, regional, and international levels.

• Insist on full protections for the most vulnerable shark and ray species We advocate for science-based fishing limits for sharks and rays and a precautionary approach to be taken when species information is lacking. We fight the tough, long battles needed to implement protection policies for some of the world’s most threatened sharks and rays – including global wildlife agreements and inter-government treaties like CITES, CMS or regional fishery regimes. Project AWARE is creating a global movement of shark and ray advocates to help protect the most vulnerable shark and ray species

• Negotiate strong policies to ensure a brighter future for our ocean and its wildlife Together, we’re making strong arguments for change. Scuba divers and eco-tourists represent a powerful economic constituency and economic incentive to protect marine environments. Project AWARE represents your voice, the scuba diver voice, emphasizing the importance of keeping the ocean clean and healthy when and where the decisions are being made.

Thank you for your generous support.
