Coral reef ecosystems are important in sustaining the ocean of the Maldives. Hence, the island nation has numerous ongoing conservation efforts from protected areas, ban on shark fishing to countless protected marine species. And In case you didn’t know, the Maldives is just 1% land and 99% water.

Celebrated on 8th June of every year, World Oceans Day brings together staffs and guests in resorts to honour the ocean. Check out how resorts in the Maldives celebrated World Oceans Day this year, 2021.

MUI by Six Senses Laamu invited guests and hosts at the resort for a snorkel of the entire house reef. According to Six Senses Laamu, the resort’s beautiful house reef is fully protected and is the site of many marine conversation projects by MUI. This includes the Maldives’ most in-depth coral spawning study, daily megafauna surveys, reef recovery investigations and much more.
