Have you been following the Green Fins International Year of the Reef 2018 campaign? Divided into four parts, the campaign aims to cultivate positive behavior change within the diving community. It has one main objective: making sustainable diving the social norm.
The first part of the campaign is Redefine the Dive. This action point identifies all the threats diving can create and provides tips and tricks guides can use to “redefine” how their guests dive. Dive-tourists will gain a deeper understanding of what to expect from their dive shops and dive guides.
An average of 70 percent of divers contact the reef while diving. But why this is considered a threat, and why is direct diver damage so relevant to marine conservation? What can you do?
Find all of the answers in the exclusive release of the Green Fins IYOR 2018 #RedefineTheDive infographic:
