As of the 12th November 2016, Green Fins are now official partners with the Miss SCUBA International (MSI) pageant, the only pageant programme that globally focusses on the importance of the oceans and their current struggle. The founder of the programme, Mr Robert Lo is a strong believer in sustainable development within the realms of the marine environment and hopes that by sharing the beauty and wonders of the underwater world via beauty queens, it will enable more people to understand how fragile the seas and oceans are and how much more we all need to play our individual roles to make difference in protecting it. The Reef-World Foundation who are the international coordinators of Green Fins are highly supportive of the various programmes and initiatives that MSI already support and their interest in sustainable development perfectly mirrors Green Fins mission statement "To protect and conserve coral reefs by establishing and implementing environmentally friendly guidelines to promote a sustainable diving and snorkelling tourism industry."
This partnership will promote the various activities in our joined mission to build awareness on the various issues surrounding sustainable marine tourism and development whilst promoting positive messages of best practice internationally. The next Miss Scuba International competition will take place in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia on the 19th November 2016 so look out for the Green Fins logo!
