Marine Biology and Coral Conservation

Marine Biology and Coral Conservation

Once a week, children can take part in a Junior Coral Ranger session, where they learn the importance of conservation in a playful environment and have the opportunity to plant their own coral.

Guests may also join our Marine Biologist for her weekly marine talk or go on snorkelling tours where they can observe the progress of our coral frames and plant their own corals.

The Vittaveli Coral Regeneration Project has been launched by the resort in collaboration with Best Dives Maldives, the on-site Dive and Water Sports Center and is run under the supervision of our resident Marine Biologist.

Here in the Maldives, we have some of the most beautiful reefs in the world, and we aim to support their stability and regeneration through our Coral Regeneration programme. In this project, we take vulnerable, bleached corals and give them a healthy, stable environment to regenerate.

Our Marine Biologist also engages in other forms of reef protection such as the removal of Crown of Thorns, a specific species of starfish that destroy reefs when overpopulating them. On a regular basis, we arrange Reef Cleaning events with colleagues and guests as part of PADI's Project AWARE initiative.
