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.

November 2014 – Philippines – Malapascua Green Fins Ambassador Programme


Reef-World is proud to announce the formation of the latest Green Fins Ambassador group in Malapascua. First launched in Puerto Galera in 2012, the Green Fins Ambassador Programme provides carefully selected dive guides with additional training in marine biology and ecology, environmental dive briefings and correction of customer damaging behavior underwater. These guides are in the prime position to champion sustainable diving practices amongst their peers, and to champion local environmental activities in their communities.

Building on the success of the programme in both Puerto Galera and Moalboal, we welcome six (6) new guides into the team. Introducing Gino Pelayo, Rissa May Arriesgado, Ronel Pepito, Leo Tuilo, Gibb Bacaltos and Ted Arrofo. Congratulations to all of you and we look forward to supporting your hard work in the future!
