Coral Friendly Guidelines for Tourists

Extensively researched and endorsed by leading partners in conservation, these guidelines embrace the most commonly accepted "best practices" around the world. They give essential advice on how to protect coral reefs while enjoying activities on and around them.

As coral reefs face an increasingly uncertain future, divers, snorkelers and other coral reef visitors are becoming some of the strongest and most effective advocates for coral reef conservation.

These simple leaflets are designed to improve your coral reef expertise and give you general guidance on activities around coral reefs, but please also look out for and follow local rules and regulations.

The guidelines are also meant for coral parks practitioners. Whether you are a park manager, dive operator, or part of the local community - these are for you to use and adapt as outreach and education materials.

ICRAN have recently partnered with the Coral Reef Alliance and the Emirates Diving Association (EDA) to reproduce and disseminate these guidelines in Arabic throughout the UAE and surrounding region. View announcement
