Actions taken to promote environmental or social sustainability

Ecodivers is a proud supporter and Silver Member of the Roatan Marine Park (RMP) - (we sell the RMP bracelet with all funds going directly to the organization).

We have collaborated with the RMP project, Junior Park Rangers of Roatan, an initiative designed to introduce local students into the underwater world. 13 to 19 year old kids received environmental education and learned how to interact with the marine world. On their days off from school, these students received the Scuba Diver certificate, participated in beach cleanups, with the older kids climbing the recreational diver ladder up to Rescue Diver.

We plan ahead of time and provide pre-dive briefings to all our divers in order to ensure safety and avoid any eventuality.

Promote diving in a coral friendly way (No gloves, no knives, maintaining neutral buoyancy, no touching or removing marine life, we pick up trash from the ocean whenever we see it).

We give our boat proper preventive maintenance as to avoid spills and/or leaks. 

Ecodivers participates in beach cleanups organized by the Bay Islands Coastal Cleanup (BICCU).

Educated local teachers on marine ecology and conservation and took them snorkeling so they could see the coral reefs up close. 

Organize "Eco-nights" a where local and international guest speakers discuss issues related to marine ecology.
