Lti Maafushivaru, a stunning resort and a TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Award 2021 winner, is thrilled  to announce their new marine conservation project. In April 2021, three tester coral frames were installed and placed in various locations around the island’s arrival jetty, which is a prime location for  snorkelers so guests can see the progress of the frames.  
Philippa Darbyshire-Jenkins, Marine Biologist for lti Maafushivaru said ‘Unfortunately, reefs around  the Maldives have really suffered since the El Niño effect that saw a two degree increase in the oceans  water temperature which subsequently caused corals around the country to bleach. Overall, there was  a 95% mortality rate, so it is of most importance to give our reefs a helping hand.’ 
‘Over the next three weeks, an additional three more frames will be installed on a deeper level in front  of the arrival jetty (around 12m-15m), we will monitor these frames over a three-week period to observe and see which location is most favourable to the coral fragments that we have placed onto  the frames. Once we have determined the best location, more frames will be built and placed around  the area.’ added Philippa. 
The goal is to install 20 frames within three months, and they will represent the Coral Restoration  Project lead by Lti Maafushivaru Marine Biology Department. Marine conservation is one of the top  priorities at Lti Maafushivaru, the resort is also involved in different research projects such as Manta  Trust, Olive Ridley, Maldives Whale Shark Research Program and eOceans.
