Cinnamon Dhonveli Maldives shells out for sea turtle conservation efforts

Published

In honor of World Turtle Day 2024, Cinnamon Dhonveli Maldives has announced the adoption of three sea turtles residing in the waters surrounding their island resort. The two Green Turtles and one Hawksbill Turtle, named Rehendi, Raivilla, and Raalhu, will benefit from the resort’s ongoing commitment to marine conservation.

This initiative builds upon Cinnamon Hotels & Resorts’ broader environmental efforts. Through a data-gathering project that utilizes Maldives Ocean temperature loggers and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) mapping, the company has developed detailed biodiversity inventories for each of its island resorts. These inventories encompass fish species, reefs, mangroves, and other ecosystems, with a particular focus on globally endangered species like sea turtles.

“As keystone species,” explains a statement from Cinnamon Dhonveli Maldives, “sea turtles play a critical role in maintaining the health of our oceans. Their threatened status underscores the importance of conservation efforts.” Six out of the world’s seven sea turtle species are classified as threatened with extinction by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), highlighting the urgency of protecting these magnificent creatures.

Recognizing their responsibility towards these endangered animals, Cinnamon Dhonveli Maldives is actively involved in supporting the Olive Ridley Project. Through their adoption and donation program, the resort contributes to the project’s vital work of rescuing and rehabilitating injured turtles, while also supporting research initiatives that improve our understanding of sea turtles and their habitats.

Sustainability is a core value at Cinnamon Dhonveli Maldives, further reflected in their ongoing coral propagation program. This program, along with a 2.5-year research project examining underwater environmental factors, exemplifies the resort’s commitment to protecting marine biodiversity. By transplanting corals and raising awareness of their importance, Cinnamon Dhonveli Maldives is working to ensure a healthy future for the Maldivian coral reefs.
