Conservation in the Maldives


Our natural reef is one to be admired and protected by all. As the threat of environmental destruction grows around the world, so does the concern here at Ithaafushi – The Private Island to address the fast-growing threat of marine plastic pollution and emphasize the importance of marine conservation in the Maldives.

The protection of the marine ecosystem is one of our biggest focuses. Our in-house Marine Biologist ensures that we maintain our coral nurseries in perfect condition for replicating natural coral reproduction and growth during rehabilitation, actively contributing to conservation in the Maldives. After which they will be reattached to our Reef.

We are excited to partner with Parley Maldives, the Maldives branch of Parley for the Oceans, where they address this threat through the new Parley AIR strategy – Avoid, Intercept, and Redesign, playing a pivotal role in conservation in the Maldives. Together we will address some of the major threats towards our ocean, the most important ecosystem of our planet. It is a space where creators, thinkers, and leaders come together to raise awareness for the beauty and fragility of our ocean and simultaneously collaborate on projects that can end their destruction, furthering the cause of conservation in the Maldives.
