At the heart of every ‘revolution’, every major change in society, is someone who decided to do something however small. Something that they could do, something they had control over. This idea is one of the foundations of the Green Fins initiative. Conceived by the UN Environment and internationally coordinated by The Reef-World Foundation, it leverages the passion the diving industry has for the oceans for positive change. Green Fins helps dive and snorkel operator members find pragmatic solutions to local environmental threats. One by one, each member makes solid changes to their business practices to protect reefs and collectively, we can reach the scale of global change. At the same time, every diver who is exposed to Green Fins through one of the members, is changed forever. The complete diving experience turns into an opportunity to not only observe the marine environment, but also to conserve it.
