Green Fins is conducting an active social media campaign to mark the International Year of the Reef. The new Alternatives to Anchoring infographic is the second action point in the campaign. If you’ve been following the campaign, you know that it aims to encourage divers and dive businesses to take further action by sharing and providing solutions to some of the ocean’s biggest threats. By doing so we’ll help save coral reefs from mass extinction, as well as the livelihoods of the more than 200 million people who depend on healthy and balanced coral reef ecosystems.
Do you know exactly how an anchor can damage marine ecosystems? What are environmentally friendly alternatives? There is no one answer when it comes to finding alternatives to anchoring, however, this campaign will serve as a platform to inspire action and change in others by sharing success stories gleaned from more than 10 years of working with the industry.
Find out how anchoring damages the reef and learn about some potential solutions in the newly-released infographic and follow this link to share the infographic with your fellow divers.
Follow the different Green Fins social-media platforms to get involved and make a change. Because if you don’t…who will?
