Reef Check Receives Prestigious Award from German Diving Magazine

Submitted by Georg Heiss
One of the leading German magazines for recreational divers, tauchen (=diving), celebrated its 10th year with an award ceremony on January 24 in Düsseldorf at the “boot 2008”, the most important European watersports fair. Each year the magazine awards the best products, dive centers, and tour operators.

For the first time, an honorary award for the protection of reefs was given to Reef Check. The award consists of a statue of a dolphin and a certificate. Several members of Reef Check Germany were present at the ceremony and Georg Heiss, director of Reef Check e.V. Germany, received the award on behalf of the Reef Check Foundation.

“Reefs are fascinating not only to divers, but they are of utmost importance for the marine ecosystems and thus for the protection of the global environment. We honour the important work of Reef Check with the Honorary Award 2008” says Carolyn Martin, chief editor of tauchen.
