Collaborating for Conservation in Bali 2014 – Bali Funathon®  

26 Sep

Blue Season Bali, Crystal Divers and Joe’s Gone Diving in Bali have joined forces with the united goal of raising funds and awareness for shark conservation.

Giving Project AWARE’s Finathon® concept a unique twist the trio of dive centres are hosting the Funathon and putting the fun into fundraising!

Events include water volleyball tournament spanning two months, a FINtastic flea market and a Funathon party style family BBQ with games, raffles and an auction.

Funathon-Bali-2014

The Bali flea market raised $1000USD to protect sharks. Old clothes, books, DVDs and jewelry all reused to stop over consumption.  With the so much pressure facing the resources of our natural planet it’s important to think about our clothes, where they come from, what they are made of, who makes them and the consequences of production.

Events like the Bali Funathon aim to inspire the entire community of Sanur to think twice and also get involved in marine conservation.

“We’re delighted to unite the Sanur Bali dive community for the first Project AWARE Volleyball event. After the successful Crystal Bali Divers Funathon in 2013 we were looking forward to doing it all again and raising funds to support sharks. Collaborating with likeminded dive professionals is a great way to build the movement to protect our ocean planet.” Funathon Event Team: Blue Season Bali, Crystal Divers and Joe’s Gone Diving.

Project AWARE relies on support from divers to fund critical conservation, all funds raised will help:

  • Fight to stop finning
  • Insist on full protections for Critically Endangered sharks
  • Negotiate stronger policies to ensure a brighter future for all sharks

Together divers have a powerful, collective voice to secure protection for endangered shark species worldwide. A big thanks to all the dive centres and supporters in Bali. Get down to the Funathon at Crystal Divers – October 11th 2014.

Proudly supporting ocean protection with Project AWARE
