Some Green Fins members have not been able to go through their annual assessment process due to the pandemic. An inactive status does not mean they are not operational or that they are not following environmental standards. Please contact members directly to see if they are open for business. The Green Fins teams will be doing all they can to reassess members in their respective countries as soon as it is possible and safe to do so.
Alan (Reef-World Project Coordinator) attended a meeting in Batangas City to orientate the government staff to the Green Fins approach and then allow them structured time to develop an Action Plan which can then be included in their 2017 Work and Financial Plans.
On July 29th 2017, Green Fins stakeholders organised a beach clean-up involving the dive shops, local community and local government. In just two hours, over 60 volunteers collected roughly 400 kg of trash from Doljo Beach.
