How can we all help?

Environmental issues are global and we can all make positive changes, no matter how small we may feel our actions may be.

“Quicksilver believes that one of our primary roles is to help visitors understand and appreciate the marine environment. In doing so, we hope that each visitor will leave as a “Reef Ambassador” helping to ensure that coral reefs are respected and cared for.”
