WHAT CAN YOU DO?
You don’t need to be a marine biologist to make a difference!
• Be a responsible diver: Treat the reef with respect – don’t touch anything underwater, don’t collect shells, practise good buoyancy skills, and participate in conservation programmes.
• Support sustainable tourism initiatives: Use resorts and dive operators that are really doing something to reduce their impacts.
• Change your habits: Reducing your personal consumption of energy, water and other natural resources is easy, and helps to reduce the stress on our general environment. If everyone does a bit, it adds up to a lot. And it saves you money!
• Get educated: Learn more about the issues; that way you will be able to persuade others to do the same as you do. SDOP
