Royal Island to Lead Reef Cleaning Initiative in Baa Atoll

Royal Island, in collaboration with the Baa Atoll Council and Baa Atoll Biosphere Reserve, will host a reef cleaning event at Eydhafushi Island as part of the upcoming World Oceans Day events this week. This initiative, led by the DiveOceanus dive center at Royal Island, aims to promote marine conservation and community engagement within the Baa Atoll region.
The Parley registered clean-up event will bring together dive centers from neighboring resorts and local islands. Experienced divers will undertake the underwater clean-up, ensuring the reef and marine habitats are cleared of debris, while students from the Eydhafushi School Environment Club will manage the beach clean-up and waste sorting, promoting environmental awareness and community involvement.
More than 120 participants, including divers and students, are anticipated to join the clean-up effort on June 7th. Key participants include the Eydhafushi Council, Baa Atoll Biosphere Reserve, Eydhafushi Police, and Eydhafushi School, among others. Parley Maldives will support the event by providing collection bags for efficient waste disposal.
