As a Green Fins member, TGI Maldives at Constance Halaveli Maldives has established and implemented guidelines to promote a sustainable diving and snorkelling tourism industry by assisting with the protection and conservation of coral reefs.
As part of their efforts, TGI Maldives were happy to welcome Green Fins assessors, Mr Abdullah Arif and Mr Hussain Ibrahim to Halaveli. During their visit, they took part in a dive with the TGI Maldives team in order to evaluate their environmental practices. They also organized a training session involving all the diving instructors of TGI Maldives, in order to explain to them how to follow the Green Fins strict Code of Conduct. TGI Maldives Halaveli were congratulated on the success of their practices and were given suggestions on how to get more guests involved in Green Fins.
As well as the Green Fins practices, TGI Maldives at Halaveli participates in lagoon clean-ups, involving staff from several departments and guests, if they wish to join.
Green Fins is a proven conservation management approach which leads to a measurable reduction in negative environmental impacts associated with diving and snorkelling. The Green Fins initiative aims to protect and conserve coral reefs through environmentally friendly guidelines that promote a sustainable diving and snorkelling industry.
TGI Maldives comprises four dive centers strategically located nearby the Maldives world-renowned dive sites.
The first one opened in 1984 on the island of Halaveli, followed by Thulagiri in 1988 and Hudhuveli in 1989. The two latter were soon closed as TGI Maldives decided to expand TGI Diving International to the Red Sea and Honduras at that time.
