Operating within the World Heritage Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, the Quicksilver Group is committed to environmentally sustainable marine tourism and maintaining the health of the Great Barrier Reef.
We are acutely aware that we are all responsible for Climate Action and the need to be pro-active. This philosophy is core to our operational and environmental practices.
Here’s a brief overview of some of our current initiatives to address Climate Change.
Greenhouse gas emissions are produced from using electricity, from the fuel in our cars and from using products that require fuel and electricity. Increased concentrations of greenhouse gas emissions are responsible for climate change.
Here’s some tips from the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority about how we can all help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and our “carbon footprint”:
For more information on Climate Change and what you can do to help look after the health of the Great Barrier Reef, you can talk to one of our Marine Biologists onboard our reef cruises, or visit the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority’s website at www.gbrmpa.gov.au
To preserve our ecosystems and marine environments we need to keep our freshwater flows strong.
We hope that by travelling with Quicksilver, our guests will become ambassadors for future conservation of the reef.
