North Carolina Aquariums
The North Carolina Aquarium on Roanoke Island was established in 1976 to promote an awareness, understanding, appreciation, and conservation of the diverse natural and cultural resources of North Carolina's ocean, estuaries, rivers, streams, and other aquatic environments. NCARI was the first aquarium to allow JSIS to use their exhibits for dive students during the winter months.
Project AWARE Foundation is a growing movement of scuba divers protecting the ocean, one dive at a time. Our focus is on two major ocean issues: sharks in peril and marine debris, or trash in our ocean. There are many conservation issues converging on our ocean planet at once, but we're concentrating on these serious problems where scuba divers are uniquely positioned to directly and positively affect real, long-term change.
