Male’, Maldives, 12th March 2024 – Nestled in the serene embrace of North Male Atoll, Patina Maldives, Fari Islands offers a harmonious blend of luxury and adventure. Designed by renowned architect Marcio Kogan, the resort’s sanctuary boasts 90 modern villas and 20 Fari Studios, each exuding tranquility and inspiration. However, beyond its luxurious offerings, Patina Maldives has consistently led in environmental stewardship, earning prestigious recognition such as the EarthCheck Silver Certification.

In its latest stride towards perpetuity, the resort unveiled groundbreaking initiatives that transcend mere sustainability, shaping a legacy of positive influence on both people and the planet.

Unveiling Turtle Identities: A Breakthrough in Conservation Monitoring

Through a collaborative effort with the Olive Ridley Project, Patina Maldives has identified and introduced seven unique individuals to the Olive Ridley Project’s turtle database. This identification process involves photographing and analyzing the distinct patterns adorning the faces of turtles, contributing to a deeper understanding of their behaviors and habitats.

Remarkably, these efforts led to the discovery of a previously unknown turtle species within the waters of the Fari Islands, underscoring the potential of this method to expand knowledge of local marine life. Notably, seven critically endangered Hawksbill turtles have been included in this identification effort, furthering the resort’s dedication to their conservation. Guests at Patina Maldives are invited to participate in this citizen science project with Olive Ridley, contributing to the protection of marine life.

Empowering Change Through the Ghost Net Project

Ghost nets and abandoned fishing gear haunting the oceans pose a significant threat to marine life. In response, the resort actively recovers these nets, repurposing them into upcycled souvenirs that symbolize the resort’s impact on the world’s oceans. Engaging workshops led by the resident marine biologist invite guests to craft bracelets from these recovered nets, educating them about marine conservation and the devastating effects of ghost nets on marine ecosystems.

Revolutionizing Coral Conservation

In 2023, Patina Maldives launched ambitious coral restoration initiatives at Fari Islands. The Coral Restoration Project aimed to bolster coral populations, utilizing innovative techniques such as ceramic structures to enhance coral attachment. With successful engagement of guests in workshops and the planting of ceramic devices, the resort made significant strides in sustainable marine conservation efforts.

Empowering Communities for Environmental Preservation

Patina Maldives is committed to environmental stewardship through community engagement efforts. With numerous island and ocean clean-up initiatives, the resort rallied participants to remove thousands of kilograms of waste, targeting a significant portion of plastics for removal. This collective endeavor not only enhances the beauty of the surroundings but also safeguards marine life.
