Dive Ninja becomes first Green Fins Member in Los Cabos, & all of Baja, Mexico!
Today we are super stoked to announce that Dive Ninja has become one of the first 2 Green Fins Members in all of Mexico! Over the past couple months our team has been working with Green Fins to trial their new member platform as well as evaluating our own business to see what we else we can do to drive positive impact for our planets oceans. Dive Ninja’s Course Director, Aitor Díaz, had this to say: “Green Fins is such a great initiative. So I was really excited to see them branching out into more countries, such as Mexico, with this new program as well as the opportunity to be able to connect Dive Ninja with them.”
As the first Green Fins Member in Cabo San Lucas, Dive Ninja aims to set the bar higher for other dive shops in the area in hopes of inspiring businesses to follow suit and evaluate their operations to see what positive changes they too could make. “We want to keep building the community of passionate ocean lovers in Los Cabos so that one day that is what Cabo is known for – a community that goes out of their way to protect the beauty & biodiversity found in our waters”, says Jay Clue. Dive Ninja has already made a strong reputation around the world for their sustainable dive tourism as well as their multiple local marine debris programs, citizen science trips, conservation & outreach initiatives, marine wildlife courses, and conservation focused dive professional training such as their PADI Divemaster and PADI Instructor programs. Their new partnership with Green Fins is helping them to focus on new initiatives within the daily operations of the shop such as implementing a reef safe sunscreen only policy (Check out this link to learn more about some of the best reef safe sunscreens!) and developing a new workshop for Divemaster students to learn how to create their own Environmental Action Plans to help solve issues wherever their career may take them.
About Green Fins
Green Fins is a proven conservation management approach – implemented internationally by The Reef-World Foundation and the UN Environment Programme – which leads to a measurable reduction in the negative environmental impacts associated with marine tourism. It aims to protect coral reefs through environmentally friendly guidelines promoting sustainable diving and snorkelling. It provides the only internationally recognised environmental standards for marine tourism and its robust assessment system measures compliance.
Green Fins encourages and empowers divers, snorkellers, the diving industry and coastal communities to reduce the pressures on coral reefs by offering marine tourism companies practical, low-cost alternatives to harmful practices – such as anchoring, fish feeding and chemical pollution – as well as providing strategic training, support and resources. By reducing the local direct and indirect pressures tourism puts on coral reefs, it helps make corals healthier and more resilient to other stresses such as the effects of climate change.
