The Code Red Commitment

 

We call on you to encourage all tour operators and service providers to abide by the proper use of the Red Sea mooring system and not to use anchors and wires to prevent any damage to the fragile coral reefs. The Red Sea mooring system minimizes the negative impact of the increasing number of recreational boats on the fragile ecosystem of the Red Sea.

 


  • We call on you to encourage all tour operators and service providers to abide by the proper use of the Red Sea mooring system and not to use anchors and wires to prevent any damage to the fragile coral reefs. The Red Sea mooring system minimizes the negative impact of the increasing number of recreational boats on the fragile ecosystem of the Red Sea.
  • We call on you to encourage all tour operators and service providers to abide by the local regulation regarding litter and waste disposal. We shall help the Red Sea by not disposing our waste in it and help save the marine life from the devastating effect of plastics and all non biodegradable matter on it.
  • We call on you to prohibit all tour operators and service providers from engaging in harassment of the marine life in the wild. We shall respect international and local regulations regarding wild life encounters. Chasing, touching, feeding, and harassing wild life, e.g. dolphins, dugongs, turtles, sharks, and birdlife in its natural habitat disturbs its natural cycle of life and may cause its death.
  • We call on you to urge all tour operators and service providers not to involve in selling, supporting or propagating any activity or excursion that involves animal captivity or cruelty. Although all captive animals in the Red Sea are usually brought and smuggled from different parts of the world we shall not forget our responsibility towards the ocean and planet Earth at large. Disturbing the ecosystem in any environment eventually affects the whole world.
  • We call on you to urge all tour operators and service providers to be informed about oil pollution and toxic substances and to comply with local and international regulations, such as fuel, TBT anti-fouling paints, and cleaning agents. Poor maintenance, refueling and washing vessels near coral reefs cause substantial damage to the marine environment. We shall encourage the use of biodegradable cleaning agents and non-TBT anti-fouling paints to maintain a clean and visibly clear sea. 
  • We call on you to encourage all tour operators and service providers to support and extend help whenever possible to scientific research and monitoring programs. Programs of such nature support to provide conservation agencies with data needed for better management and more sustainable use of our natural resources.

I've traveled from hurghada to Marsa Alam and I'm extremely sad about the quantity of waste I've seen everywhere. Please educate Egyptian s about the damage they are doing to their home and future income.

I saw too many times, divers or boats that are destroying corals and no diving center could do anything. We all should save the read sea and persons who destroy corrals should never be allowed to dive anymore in the read sea

Just back from a diving trip in the Redsea. Lovely week but plastic in the coral was more than ever. Further some divers should train their buoyancy.

A MUST for every diver !! Why so people dive? To see the wonderful world below the surface. We can only see it if we protect it!

Ich tauche nicht mehr, nachdem ich Vorfälle am Riff erlebt habe, welche meinen Atem stocken liessen. Ich durfte einige Jahre dieses unglaublich schöne Erlenbis unter Wasser geniessen, das reicht.
