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
