Green Fins & Ghost Nets

August has been a super busy month for our team on Tioman Island. We have been catching up with our conservation work post-lockdown due to the pandemic: removing ghost nets that had already killed two hawksbill turtles, training and educating on sustainable tourism practices with dive centres and hotels. 

We were at Genting Village to train and certify dive centres as Green Fins members. Green Fins is a comprehensive approach that encourages dive centres and snorkel operators, local communities and governments to work together to reduce their environmental impacts. This is primarily done through the private sector adopting a Code of Conduct that will help mitigate their impacts when carrying out marine tourism activities.The Code of Conduct consists of 15 points, which target environmental threats posed by the tourism industry, both under water and on land. Green Fins members receive the training and the tools to promote environmental education and awareness, tapping into the tourists and the diving community, which is shifting more and more towards eco-friendly initiatives as a result of the demand from the consumer. We have also started our recycling programmes in Genting Village.
