Do the eco-thing if you're planning a trip to the Maldives and buy a piece of coral reef to protect it for future generations
Storms, natural disasters, climate change and human impact are all playing their role in damaging the coral reefs of the world. Now's your chance to make a difference.
The Beach House at Iruveli Maldives is putting the conservation of the reefs around the resort centre-stage, employing a marine biologist to encourage guests to understand more about the marine eco-system and get a chance to observe first-hand how the reefs are changing.
Guests are invited to donate US$150 to a not-for-profit ‘Adopt a Coral Reef’ programme, which enables the placing of a handmade coral study frame in the waters off the shores of the resort.
They then receive a talk on coral life, the reef and how important it is to the world’s eco-system.
Once placed in the sea, the frame is inspected at regular intervals to see how the coral is growing and progress updates and photographs are emailed to the guests who paid for the frame.
