April 2014 - Green Fins at ADEX 2014 - Dedicated to Coral Reefs

The annual Asia Dive Expo (ADEX) is a gathering of divers, dive centres, tour operators, dive equipment providers and NGOs from all over the world. In recent years there has been a higher focus on marine conservation, with talks from industry experts and displays by major conservation NGOs from around the world.

This year's theme was 'coral reefs' - a perfect fit for Green Fins, which aims to protect and conserve coral reefs by establishing a sustainable diving industry by implementing it's Code of Conduct.

The Reef-World Foundation, with the support of the United Nations Environment Programme, ran a booth aimed at promoting the project and reaching out to divers to adopt best practices. Visitors had the chance to leave their "Requests for the Reefs" for other divers to take heed! Check them our on the Green Fins Facebook Page!

Divers could also catch a talk on the relationship between divers and corals entitled 'Coral Reef Conversations', and watch the Green Fins DVD and The Coral Song.

 Catch Green Fins at ADEX again next year where we'll be continuing to encourage sustainable diving and promoting the amazing environmental work that our members put in to running their businesses.
