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 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.

The Green Fins Dominican Republic Team 🇩🇴

Green Fins Dominican Republic was established in June 2018 with support from the Regional Activity Centre for the Protocol on Specially Protected Areas and Wildlife (SPAW-RAC). The initiative is overseen and managed in the country by Reef Check Dominican Republic in collaboration with the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources and the Auxiliary Navy. Further expansion is being supported through the TUI Care Foundation.

Implementation Partners

Voices from the network

Green Fins has arrived to the Dominican Republic and the Caribbean based on pure need, for being an important tourist destination, which is mainly focused on coastal marine environments, but environmental standards were lacking. The local government has endorsed and adopted the Green Fins Program in coordination of other local NGOs such as Reef Check DR, as this is the perfect opportunity to better organize the diving industry and promote better practices.
Dr Ruben Torres
President, Reef Check Dominican Republic
