June 2021 is Ocean Awareness Month at Meeru Island Resort & Spa

Ocean Awareness Month Celebration at Meeru Island Resort & Spa, Maldives

We started celebrating the month of the ocean with an awareness session about coral reefs and our property’s Coral Restoration Project on World Reef Awareness Day on 1 June 2021. 

The day began with collecting broken pieces of corals, which were carefully attached to coral frames, and then placed in Meeru’s Coral Garden for the fragments to flourish. Meeru team members, guests, and staff from Euro-Divers Maldives joined hands to realise this eco-project.

The Coral Garden Project at Meeru Island Resort & Spa

Coral Garden Meeru Island Maldives

Meeru Island Resort & Spa’s coral garden is one of the most successful coral restoration projects in the Maldives. This reef care project started in 2016 in association with Save the Beach, a Maldivian non-profit organisation, after a coral bleaching event that affected most of the coral reefs in the country.

This project allows us to foster interest and awareness of coral reefs and the global threats facing them to inspire actions to conserve our resources when people visit the ocean.

Our aim has always been to help regenerate reef segments, promote coral growth, and provide guests with an enchanting underwater experience in Meeru’s lagoon whilst simultaneously creating respect and an understanding of the benefits of corals and their contribution to the ecosystem.

Today, more than 3,000 coral fragments of about 14 different species have been planted, with an average growth rate of 7 centimetres per year.

Many marine species have made Meeru’s Coral Garden their habitat, with the biodiversity of more than 22 fish types in the lagoon, including some rare species like ghost pipefish and tetralia crab, which is an excellent coral crab.

Other species such as turtles, rays, and small reef sharks can be spotted cruising in this area, an awe-inspiring sight for all marine life enthusiasts.

Coral Garden Monitoring

 

Coral Garden at Meeru Island Resort & Spa Maldives

The Coral Garden Project is looked after by our well-trained Meeru team members, who frequently monitor the area to clean the algae and check the temperature changes that affect the coral growth rate.

So far, five different ways of coral plantation have been researched and implemented in the coral garden itself.

Our resort team has also installed a web camera that sits underwater in the coral garden situated on the island’s eastern part.  The webcam feed can be seen live directly from the Meeru website – an enthralling aquarium as described by visitors to the nursery and viewers of the live webcam.

Guests staying in the comfort of their homes may have a glimpse of our coral garden here: Meeru’s Coral Garden Live Webcam Feed

On 8 June, in celebration of World Oceans Day 2021, our resort team has prepared various activities for guests to participate. Discover more: Every Day Is World Oceans Day at Meeru Island Resort & Spa
