In observance of World Environment and World Oceans Day last week, Kuramathi Maldives instigated a clean-up of the house reef and the iconic Kuramathi sandbank. Other highlights include a documentary screening of our Blue Planet and educational activities for the kids at Bageecha Kids Club. Apart from honouring our environment and oceans, these activities aim to protect two essential resources that provide major sources of food and oxygen to the planet.
We kicked off World Environment Day educating the kids about the impact of air pollution and what they can do to prevent it. After creating handcrafts, the kids visited the Hydroponic Garden to plant herbs for the Green Wall by recycling empty plastic bottles. In the afternoon, volunteers gathered at the sandbank to pick up trash. Everyone was rewarded with fresh coconuts! For World Oceans Day, the Rasdhoo Divers team along with some of our guests collected about five bags of rubbish from the ocean floor. During sunset, the Kids Club Team made sand sculptures about the ocean at the sandbank. We capped off World Oceans Day with an episode of One Ocean, Blue Planet at Fung Bar and Laguna Bar. Kuramathi Maldives hopes these initiatives can create awareness and bring about change to help preserve the environment and our oceans.
