The tide is turning for marine tourism in Indonesia with the launch of Green Fins in January 2018.
Established in 2004, Green Fins provides international standards for environmentally responsible diving and snorkeling. It is coordinated by the UN Environment and The Reef-World Foundation and is being implemented in Indonesia by the Coral Triangle Center. It is also an active network of more than 500 dive and snorkel operators in eight countries around the world all working to protect our marine environment.
Green Fins is a proven conservation management approach which leads to a measurable reduction in the negative environmental impacts associated with marine tourism. It aims to protect coral reefs through environmentally friendly guidelines promoting sustainable diving and snorkelling. It provides the only internationally recognised environmental standards for marine tourism and its robust assessment system measures compliance.
When a dive or snorkel operator joins Green Fins, they are making a commitment to protect coral reefs and our marine environment by agreeing to critically assess all aspects of their day-to-day operations.
