Between December 2013 and January 2014, Green Fins volunteer coordinators were conducting the training and assessments for Green Fins member dive centres in Moalboal. A total of 18 members received the annual awareness-raising session - a 45-minute presentation on coral reef biology and ecology that also provides local solutions to common environmental threats. 14 dive centres were assessed giving the area an average score of 155 out of 330. Remember that with Green Fins, the lower the score the better. Congratulations to all members for dropping an average of 41 points from last year!
In addition to the annual GF activities, 26 divers from ten dive centres participated in a synchronized clean up event of the reefs and beaches of Panagsama, removing 155kg of marine debris from the coral reefs. A big thank you to all those involved.
