Here at Best Dives Maldives we take an active role in protecting the fragile underwater environment.
CORAL FARMING PROJECT
Best Dives Maldives is leading a coral restoration project together with the resorts where we operate. Headed by our team of Marine Biologists, the aim is to develop different replanting methods whereby fragmented corals can be induced to grow artificially. Artificial reefs are a form of active restoration aimed at increasing coral health, diversity and abundance. Once populated, these structures will provide an opportunity for guests to witness the growth of a new coral garden.
Best Dives Maldives is committed in preserving the marine environment where we operate. Our dive team regularly conducts underwater debris clean-up and is an active supporter of Project AWARE’s Adopt a Dive Site project. In addition, coastal clean-up in neighbouring local island is also regularly initiated by Best Dives team together with the resort staff and local island residents.
Best Dives Maldives follows the guidelines and standards of Green Fins organization.
The mission of Green Fins is to protect and conserve coral reefs by establishing and implementing environmental-friendly guidelines to promote a sustainable diving and snorkelling tourism industry.
