Reef Check Malaysia Participates in Malaysia International Dive Exhibition
Submitted by Reef Check Malaysia Program Manager Julian Hyde
In early July, Reef Check Malaysia participated in its first public event, the Malaysia International Dive Exhibition (MIDE 07). The response from the crowd was enthusiastic, with over 600 people visiting the stand over the 3 day event. Over 320 people signed the International Declaration of Reef Rights.
Featured at the booth were displays on Reef Check Malaysia’s programmes (training, surveys and outreach), as well as information on our sponsors (BP, HSBC and Sime Darby). Our dive centre network was also on display, and there were a number of enquiries about the EcoDiver training programmes available through members.
In addition, a number of potential corporate sponsors showed interest in Reef Check programmes. Reef Check Malaysia offers a number of sponsorship opportunities as part of its “Adopt a Reef” programme. From as little as RM 1,000 to an exclusive package for RM 50,000, these are an important part of fundraising for Reef Check Malaysia. After seeing the stand, KPMG has agreed to sponsor Reef Check Malaysia with the proceeds of its forthcoming Charity Run.
