The Green Fins JAPAN Team 🇯🇵

The Green Fins approach is being piloted in Japan by Onna Village as part of the national Sustainable Development Goals project as it aims to manage an expansive diving and snorkelling industry. This work is being supported by Onna Village local government and Diving Association and Ocean+α.

Initial scoping in 2013 was supported by NPO Okinawa O.C.E.A.N. after which Onna Village was recommended as a pilot site for Green Fins. The Japanese Ministry of Environment included Green Fins within its national Coral Reef Action Plan 2016-2021.

The full launch of Green Fins in Japan happened in May 2022 (this launch had been delayed due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic).

Voices from the network

“Though I cannot change things just by myself, with support from and cooperation with many people we can protect the environment and maintain it for future generations,” he says. “I hope that by using the Green Fins code of conduct, we will be able to inform divers about environmental issues more effectively and enable divers to have a wonderful diving experience.”
