International Year of the Reef, 2008

International Year of the Reef, 2008

It's happening right now and if you're a diver, you should be part of it.

The ICRI International Year of the Reef 2008 is a worldwide campaign to raise awareness about the value and importance of coral reefs and threats to their sustainability, and to motivate people to take action to protect them. All individuals, corporations, schools, governments, and organizations are welcome and actively encouraged to participate in IYOR 2008.

The International Year of the Reef or IYOR has a good and informative website which I hope you will visit.

The slogan "strong reefs, strong islands" embodies two significant messages of the campaign; the need for future marine and coral reef projects as well as deriving lessons from the past.

There are tips what you can do to preserve the reefs and educational materials amongst others.

PADI's own Project Aware is involved as well.

Have a look at their website, spread the word and get involved!
