At Bawah we are aware that tourism can boost economic growth, but if not managed carefully, it could adversely impact the environment. We need to ensure that we will be able to enjoy this beautiful paradise for many generations to come,” explained Paul Robinson, Bawah Reserve COO. “Bawah Reserve is proud to be a part of the Signing Blue initiative to further support marine conservation in the Anambas Archipelago.” Robinson continued.

The coral triangle is home to half of the coral species, a habitat for other marine life and a migrating transit for nautical mammals. If it is not responsibly and sustainably handled, the time for marine and nautical extinction in this archipelago will surely come due to the harmful practice of tourism. Therefore WWF- Indonesia initiated Signing Blue program in 2015, to promote a responsible marine tourism program in Indonesia. Signing Blue encourages tourists and tourism businesses to improve their behaviors and activities by behaving sustainably and to actively protect natural resources.

Tourism businesses, like Bawah Reserve, go through an extensive accreditation process by an independent auditor in order to be included in the program. Sustainability practices, community welfare and, most importantly, marine conservation is checked and verified on site.

We want to ensure that all tourism businesses are held to a similar standard to create a responsible tourism system” closed WWF-Indonesia CEO Rizal Malik.
