ABSTRACT
This article reports that the Maldives will outline projects to protect its unique marine environment during World Travel Market. With sustainable and responsible tourism enjoying greater exposure, thanks largely to the efforts of organisations such as the Travel Foundation and Tourism Concern, tourism chiefs want to safeguard its coral and ensure it remains the natural wonder it is today for years to come. Among the initiatives expected to be revealed by officials from the Indian Ocean islands are plans to suggest alternative dive sites for tourists. Diving will again be a central theme of the Maldives' promotional activity at ExCeL. It will also focus on its perception as a safe destination and highlight the upmarket nature of its hotels and resorts.
