Launched: Coming soon (Launch delayed by COVID-19)
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 has included Green Fins within its national Coral Reef Action Plan 2016-2021.
The full launch of Green Fins in Japan has been delayed due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
