Kuramathi Maldives marks World Biodiversity Day and World Turtle Day

Kuramathi Maldives has hosted a range of exciting activities to mark two important events; World Biodiversity Day and World Turtle Day.

On World Biodiversity Day, which fell on May 22, eager divers plunged into the blue with the resident marine biologist in a special marine ecology dive, which ended with the divers receiving celebratory fresh coconuts after the dive. Meanwhile, Bageecha Kids Club played their part by incorporating the theme in a programme where kids created clever crafts from recyclable materials.

Later in the afternoon, a wildlife and ecology presentation was given to adult guests and kids, paying tribute to the World Biodiversity Day.

On the following day, which was celebrated as the World Turtle Day, an educative workshop was held at the Eco Centre for the students of Alif Alif Education Centre. Marine biologist from Atoll Marine Centre Zoe Cox joined as the special guest to share her expertise and insight of turtles.

Bageecha Kids Club also encouraged eager kids to make sea turtles and tortoises out of recyclable materials.

“Kuramathi actively celebrates environmental related days, where the next function is in June for World Environment Day and World Oceans Day,” a statement by the resort read.

Kuramathi is one of the first resorts to open in the Maldives and is part of Universal Resorts of Universal Enterprises, a 100 percent Maldivian company and the pioneers of tourism in the Maldives.

An emerald jewel in the turquoise Maldivian waters, Kuramathi is a stunning island retreat with acres of luxuriant vegetation surrounded by spectacular beaches tapering into an endless sandbank. Villas blend contemporary design and nature, and are set on the beach, amongst lush gardens or over water. Four poster beds, open-air bathrooms, rainfall showers or Jacuzzi, large outdoor decks with inviting daybeds or sun loungers, are just some of the creature-comforts enjoyed by guests. Dining options are diverse with many restaurants, bars and great-value all-inclusive packages, topped off with Maldivian service – welcoming, genuine and friendly.
