Climate Change poses one of the greatest threats to the Great Barrier Reef and coral reef environments worldwide.
Our Action to Reduce Emissions and Promote Sustainable Reef Practices
Tim North Marine has taken steps to tackle climate change by reducing our carbon emissions:
Tim North Marine encourages our guests to introduce environmental practices, such as using energy saving appliances, low energy bulbs, reduction of waste and litter and the use of environmentally friendly detergents.
Visitors can choose to measure and offset travel emissions through organisations such as Climate Friendly who provide emissions calculators and contribute to the growth of the renewable energy industry.
We contribute to the Minke Whale Project’s Tagging Research Project and Viking is made available to the Cairns Turtle Rehabilitation Centre to assist releases of rehabilitated turtles. We encourage guests to become involved in supporting the work of these not for profit organisations.
While travelling we encourage our guests to choose to support tour operators who have achieved the Ecotourism and Climate Action certification logo. Ecotourism Australia Certification allows travellers to Australia to identify and support operators who meet the benchmark and so ensure tourism products have minimal impact to the environment.
