We are Green Fins!
Blog Sharm – 12.10.19
The Reef-World Foundation and Chamber of Diving & Watersports (CDWS) is adopting Green Fins environmental standards to protect its coral reefs and we are part of it!
The country has become the first in its region and the 11th worldwide to officially adopt Green Fins. Green Fins is one element of CDWS’ ambitious action plan to strengthen sustainability within the marine tourism sector across Egypt.
Diving related damage to sensitive marine ecosystems, including coral reefs, is becoming an increasingly significant issue. This damage makes them less likely to survive other local and wider stressors, such as overfishing or plastic debris as well the effects of climate change, such as rising sea temperatures.
The Green Fins initiative helps identify and mitigate these risks by providing environmental consultation and support, based on robust individual assessments, to dive and snorkel operators.
Green Fins aims to protect and conserve coral reefs through environmentally friendly guidelines to promote a sustainable diving and snorkeling tourism industry.
We are very very proud to be one of the first diving operators pioneering the Green Fins movement in Egypt!
For the love of the Red Sea and our planet we will continue, as we always have done, to fulfil our duties towards the marine environment and help to protect and preserve our paradise!
