On this Earth day 2021, at Kuramathi Maldives, resort team members and guests joined hands to take action for the planet.
Inspired by this year’s theme, “Restore Our Earth,” the three-day environmental event comprised of a series of underwater clean-up, enriching outdoor tours, and insightful visual presentations.
To kick-start the celebration, volunteers headed out to sea for a snorkel clean-up scouring the surrounding reef and collecting various rubbish. On Earth Day itself, the clean-up intensified into the deep blue with certified divers who retrieved sacks full of discarded tyres, cans, fishing nets, and an odd assortment of debris. Our Resident Marine Biologist led an informative talk about “Coral Restoration” emphasising the importance of protecting this delicate marine habitat.
The event was then followed with a walkthrough around the Nature Trail, a preserved Maldivian forest, home to various flora that thrives on the island, and a visit to the Hydroponic Garden with our resident horticulturist who demonstrated the ingenious system of growing and harvesting the produce we serve on our team and guests’ buffet. Aptly capping off the activities was the viewing of the documentary “Chasing Coral” at Laguna Bar.
“At Kuramathi Maldives we take being green to heart by taking part in environmental-focused celebrations and carrying out these sustainable initiatives all year-round.” read a statement by the resort.
