Such actions have consisted of 3 stages:

SUSTAINABLE TOURISM TIPS

  1. Conventional sunscreens may damage animals and plants instead look for biodegradable sunscreen. 
  2. Plastic pollution is exceptionally damaging to marine animals and their habitats. Endangered sea turtles often mistake plastic shopping bags for their favorite food – jellyfish. Where possible, avoid buying products that come in disposable packages and use reusable shopping bags. 
  3. Animals are not toys. They are living, intelligent beings that suffer in captivity. Don’t pay to have photos taken with them or to swim with them and you can avoid keeping them away from their natural home. 
  4. Turtles are very sensitive. If you see one laying eggs, don´t take photos or try to touch it or hop on it. Respect them and do not step over the fenced off nests in the beach. 
  5. Do not buy plants or products of animal origin from endangered species such as turtle eggs. 
  6. Practice water sports responsibly. Treat reefs as works of art. Do not touch them while snorkeling. If you are sailing, always look for a safe sand-bottom location to anchor away from the reef. 
  7. Walk, use a bicycle or public transportation. Fossil fuel pollution contributes to climate warming, which is the main cause of coral reef destruction.
