Responsible Diving for Coral Reef Conservation

Diving responsibly to protect reefs for everyone´s benefit

Sistema de Buceo ResponsableProperty, goods, and equity are assets that require proper use and management to ensure long-term personal and corporate wealth. Correspondingly, coral reefs are an asset to the reef tourism sector. Coral reefs are the playground for snorkelers and divers, the office for dive professionals and marine researchers, and source of revenue for the diving and coastal tourism industries. Therefore, we must learn how to properly use and manage coral reefs if we are to continue reaping the benefits of healthy coral reefs.

As part of our mission, Corales de Paz believes that there are three distinct components for creating a snorkeling and diving industry that has a net positive environmental impact. The three components are knowledge, skills, and behavior, and together form the Corales de Paz Responsible Diving System de Corales de Paz que te ayuda a asegurarte de que siempre pones más de lo que tomas de los arrecifes de coral.

A reef user like you, (e.g. beachgoer, snorkeler or diver) must have a proper foundation of knowledge to understand how coral reefs function, and their strong connection with humans, to be aware of the impact you are causing to coral reefs. Practical training offers you the opportunity to develop the skills necessary to measure and reduce the impact caused to coral reefs. At Corales de Paz, we have packed a minimum set of concepts and skills within our Universo de Buceo con Propósito (MDU) which we believe you need to start helping build resilient coral reefs. From the moment you enter the MDU, you must adopt and commit to an environmentally friendly use of coral reefs. You have now the ability to positively influence reef user behavior and help protect coral and other marine life on every visit.
