Longitude 181 Nature
Founded in 2002 by François Sarano with its honorary President Albert Falco, the former Captain of the Calypso, the association Longitude 181 Nature is a non-profit organization under French law for the protection and awareness of marine life. Longitude 181 Nature aims to encourage the discovery of Nature, to meet the people, and talk about their traditions. They want to show the incredible biological and cultural diversity in the world in order that each and every one of us can enjoy the richness of the planet today and tomorrow, in a sustainable and fair way. The association is the origin for the International Charter for Responsible Divers, which encourages everyone to ask him or herself “how can I preserve the sea’s richness so that we can share it in a better way”.
TribloO.com has partnered up with Longitude 181 Nature and remains committed to promote only dive centers also committed to the preservation of the marine environment. In order to achieve this, TribloO.com and Longitude 181 Nature drew up together a list of criteria in the section “eco-responsible approach” on the evaluation grid the test divers use when assessing a dive center. In each description for a dive center selected by TribloO.com we value only those that adhere to the International Charter for Responsible Divers. A supplementary criterion was even added to be sure only the top centers make the cut.
In addition, TribloO.com and Longitude 181 Nature co-organized the first Trophy for the Most Eco-Responsible Center at the Paris Dive Show 2015. It was a huge success ! The winners were Scubaqua, a center based on the Island of Sint Eustatius in the Caribbean, and Plongée Bleue Sud, a center based in Banyuls, France. Congratsto the both ofthem
