More tourists around the world, especially in the Asia Pacific region, are participating in snorkelling, scuba-diving, and other activities in the water. Although both private and public sectors are reaping in economic benefits, this rapid growth in marine tourism has a cost. Unbeknownst to most snorkellers, divers and swimmers, they themselves may be directly contributing to the degradation of the coral reefs that they have come to enjoy.

In this issue of the VE Bulletin, Green Fins – an initiative established by the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) and Reef World – shares its strategies and success stories on engaging with dive and snorkel businesses by giving them the tools and resources needed to improve environmental practice and take responsibility for protecting the marine resources that drive their success.
