Big Blue Conservation - Green Fins

Green Fins, internationally coordinated by Reef-World, are the only recognised environmental set of standards with a comprehensive management approach to provide guidance and support for business owners and national authorities to promote best practices.

Diving and snorkelling centres are uniquely positioned to act within their own communities and among customers to encourage positive and lasting change.

Assessments are carried out and those showing annual improvement in following the Code of Conduct are awarded certificates, allowing tourists to choose environmentally responsible options.bb green fins pic

While Reef-World is sure that all Green Fins members are working hard to protect local marine life by reducing the threats they pose to it, some are doing better than others. Where resources are available, the environmental standards of Green Fins dive and snorkel centres are assessed annually to help tourists choose the most environmentally responsible centres! The Top 10 Members list those businesses who have managed to get the lowest assessment scores out of all of the assessed Green Fins dive centres within the last 18 months. The lower the score, the less environmental impact or threat there is to the coral reefs and other marine life.
