The Reef-World Foundation is the leading voice on practical sustainability solutions for the scuba diving and snorkelling industry. Its work has been proven to reduce threats to coral reefs.
Reef-World’s vision is to make sustainable diving and snorkelling the norm by driving positive behaviours to protect the environment through its flagship initiative: Green Fins. The charity runs Green Fins globally in partnership with the UN Environment Programme. Green Fins provides low-cost and practical solutions to local and industry-wide environmental challenges. It also provides education and capacity-building support to empower environmental champions to put proven coastal resource management approaches in place.
Having never had a communications professional on the team, Reef-World needed to streamline and upscale its strategy to increase global awareness of its work.
As well as maintaining a close working relationship with government, NGO and industry partners and members, Melissa widened the charity’s communications focus to also reach travellers (divers, snorkellers and swimmers) who might visit coral reefs and marine biodiversity hotspots. By teaching travellers how to behave in a sustainable way, the charity is helping them better understand why coral is so important and the threats it faces. Most importantly, it is teaching them what actions they can take to reduce their impact before they depart for their trip.
