Our Responsible Reef Use program help us become responsible for our actions and understand that in everything we do there is an impact on our planet, which can be good or bad. When the impact is bad we need to stop or reduce it; if it is positive, we need to encourage its practice. Whichever it is, we need to own it and act responsibly as our own very existence is threatened.

At Corales de Paz, we specifically promote a change in human behavior, the creation of decent work and economic growth, responsible consumption and production, protection of life below water, and the building of partnerships and collaborations to strengthen our mission.

Adopting established protocols and standards, and using digital tools we seek to inform and engage reef users (e.g. fishermen, beachgoers, divers, hotel managers, businesses, etc.) on actions that are helping us achieve the UN´s Sustainable Development Goals and specifically support coral reef conservation. We invite you to check our Responsible Diving System to learn how you as a diver can start making responsible use of coral reefs.

From Individuals to Business, All Can Use Reefs Better

We are implementing three main projects within our Responsible Reef Use program

Reef Giving

Our social responsibility program of donations and sponsorships is your opportunity to collaborate with the monitoring of a coral reef, the maintenance of a transplanted coral, coral nursery, patch or coral reef. You also have the possibility to actively participate in their care and monitoring.

Responsible Diving System

We created a Responsible Diving  System which, together with the adoption and promotion of two responsible diving initiatives (i.e. The Reef-World Foundations´s Green Fins and the SSI´s Blue Oceans) are helping divers and dive professionals reduce their environmental impact above and below water.

Positive Action Awareness

Using social media presence, we raise awareness of effective actions that people can undertake to protect and restore coral reefs. These are simple, easy to implement actions, from avoiding single-use plastic to joining coastal cleanups. They are local actions with global impacts.
