-- /EPR NETWORK/ -- recommended the Angsana Ihuru Resort and Spa in the Maldives initiated a marine conservancy program where guests can participate in this rewarding activity while on holiday.

Located just 20 minutes by speedboat from the capital Male, the Angsana Ihuru offers numerous activities, from snorkeling to diving to name a few. Guests can also join the resort staff and spend the day reef cleaning in an effort to keep one of the finest dive sites in the world with over 900 species of fish clean of litter.

Another option guests may choose is the Barnacle Project, a man made structure that ensures the sustainability of corals within an experimental reef. Results are proving successful as in the past 10 years, almost 80% of corals continue to survive the rising sea water temperature.

The Turtle Head Start Program is the Angsana Ihurus’ answer to help protect the Green Sea and Hawksbill turtles from extinction. The Marine Lab ensures the nesting areas are cordoned off to allow hatchlings to be born safely in the lagoon pens. The turtles are then fitted with tags and transmitters to monitor the behavior and movements.

The Angsana Ihuru marine biology research initiatives have not gone unnoticed. It was the first resort in the Maldives to be awarded with the Maldivian Environment Preservation Award as well as the President of the Maldives Green Resort Award.

This luxury resort offering guests unique opportunities to contribute to marine conservation can be booked through
