Many tourists want to experience the beauty of coral reefs. However, coral reefs face multiple threats and have reached an alarming status. There is an eminent need for sustainable tourism and, consequently, sustainable recreational snorkeling and diving. So far, many threats by negligent and not sufficiently educated snorkelers and divers put pressure on coral reefs all over the world. Such threats can be caused by stepping or standing on corals, by breaking and damaging corals and disturbing animal life, but also by leaving garbage and anchoring diving boats within a coral reef and subsequently destroying corals.
Apart from SECORE's direct efforts in coral reef protection and restoration, this campaign offers a great chance to raise public awareness among the many tourists and local dive guides likewise. Knowledge on coral reef ecology and how to implement sustainable tourism is shared with visiting snorkelers and divers, as well as local ones. Last but not least, our campaign provides the chance to spread once more the word on behalf of coral reef conservation
Be a considerate and careful snorkeler and diver―don't leave a trace!
