Code of Good Practice
By Tony Baskeyfield
A Code of Good Practice for Underwater Photographers has been drawn up by the Marine Conservation Society, in consultation with the British Society of Underwater Photographers: -
- Control your buoyancy.
- Don't touch corals, rest on them or kick them.
- Avoid kicking up the sand.
- Leave all reef animals where they are.
- Be extra careful when taking photographs.
- Take all of your litter home.
- Support organisations that promote reef conservation.
- Enjoy your visit and ensure those who follow enjoy theirs too.
- Be nice. Don't harass marine life.
- Be considerate. Just because you have a camera, it doesn't entitle you to get best view of marine life encounters.
- Give others a look in too. Don't barge into other divers space to get your shot.
