    HAP (Horticulturist Award Program) and BAP (Breeders Award Program) allow members to collect points at different levels. Not only does this give the participant a goal to strive for but it allows them to learn along the way. This knowledge can then be shared with other members and even clubs.

    C.A.R.E.S (Conservation, Awareness, Recognition and Responsibility, Encouragement, Sharing and Support). This is a unique preservation program specifically designed to encourage hobbyists worldwide to devote tank space to one or more species-at-risk, while forming an information network between aquarists, scientists, and conservationists. The C.A.R.E.S. preservation program has been implemented by KWAS and all our members are encouraged and welcome to participate. Whatever one's level of expertise, there is a fish for you. Imagine how good you will feel being able to say I helped save a fish from going extinct!

    MAP (Marine Achievement Program) is currently archived as there is little interest in this program. Our BAP program does allow for recognition in the marine area
