COVID-19 Update: 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. 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. For more on protecting the environment please see, COVID-19 resources →
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.
From the 17th September to the 4th October, staff from The Reef-World Foundation were in the Maldives to support the Green Fins national team with the expansion of the initiative and to provide training for additional members of the team.
Building on an incredible demand from the diving and tourism industry in the already active areas of the Maldives, Reef-World together with the Environmental Protection Agency and Baa Atoll UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Office conducted the training of one new assessor and three new coordinators.
