Here at Innahura Maldives, we are blessed to be situated amongst beautiful reefs teeming with life and the resort places a high priority on marine conservation with a commitment to raising awareness amongst guests, the team and the wider local communities about the importance of preserving the delicate underwater ecosystems.
Our divers and snorkellers will be among the first to explore this largely pristine side of the Lhaviyani Atoll and it is our hope that our observations of the life on the reefs, along with photo submissions to nationwide databases will help us to understand more about the happenings below the surface of the ocean.
Innahura will work closely with the Manta Trust which is a charity dedicated to manta and devil rays which, despite their popularity with divers and snorkellers, have become some of the most threatened fish in the sea. They coordinate global research and conservation efforts to improve the species’ chances of survival. The Olive Ridley Project is another charitable organisation which Innahura will have close ties with, it was set up in response to the number of sea turtles becoming entangled in discarded nets and their mission is to remove these ghost nets from the ocean, rescue and rehabilitate injured sea turtles, reuse and reduce marine debris, as well as education.
We look forward to sharing our conservation efforts with our guests and hope they will join is becoming ‘guardians of the ocean’.
