SCUBA NATION DIVING CENTRE CAMBODIA Goes ECO with the Project AWARE Go ECO Operator Campaign
Project AWARE Foundation, the dive industry’s leading non-profit environmental organisation, launched the Go ECO campaign into the Asia Pacific region in 2005. The main objective of Go ECO is for dive centres to minimise their impact on the aquatic ecosystem whilst contributing to environmental, economic and cultural conservation. Dive centres are required to meet best practice environmental guidelines and commit to the Project AWARE Go ECO philosophy.
SCUBA NATION CAMBODIA was delighted to be awarded with the Project AWARE Go ECO Operator status in 2007. As a Go ECO Operator we are committed to providing dive experiences that enhance visitor awareness, appreciation and understanding of the local aquatic environment.
Joanne Marston, Manager, of Project AWARE Asia Pacific added, “We are pleased to recognise Scuba Nation Cambodia as a Go ECO Operator. We look forward to working with them to implement environmental best practices and educate tourists about how they can travel responsibly.”
Scuba Nation has been fundraising for Project AWARE over the last few years on dive shows and are happy to support such a great cause.
Go ECO Operators also demonstrate a commitment to conservation and pledge to follow the Go ECO Operator guidelines.
