Feed the Turtles: Turtle Rehabilitation Project
Over the past ten years, the Dubai Turtle Rehabilitation Project has seen the release of over 700 rehabilitated turtles back into their natural habitat. After initial treatment at the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah's Aquarium, they are brought to health at the Turtle Rehabilitation Sanctuary at Jumeirah Mina A’Salam before being released.

Energy and Water Saving
As part of our commitment to the environment, we have changed over 9,000 standard light bulbs to the energy efficient CFL (Compact Fluorescent Lighting) type, at Madinat Jumeirah. They use around 75% less energy than standard bulbs, making them more eco-friendly.
In 2010, Madinat Jumeirah was the first hotel in UAE to implement the Bokashi Compost Programme to improve environmental stability. This programme involved the production of organic compost that is used in the resort’s gardens to enrich the soil and improve water retention. On an average, 2.1 tonnes of raw food waste are recycled each month, and this compost is also used to fertilise the hotel’s organic herb garden.
