a new kind of adoption

July 27th, 2011

You’ve heard of pet adoption, but have you heard of coral adoption?! Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas know that coral reefs are much more than just snorkeling spectacles. In fact, the Maldives’ Baa Atoll region is full of coral that helps protect the pristine beaches at Anantara Kihavah Villas and guard Kihavah Huravalhi Island’s crystal blue lagoon, as well as also supporting an astounding array of tropical fish and other sea creatures. However, coral is a fragile organism and vulnerable to extreme weather and sudden environmental changes. To ensure countless beach vacations in the future and more importantly, the health of our world’s oceans, Anantara Kihavah Villas has started a coral adoption program. During the construction of the villas, the resident marine biologist created coral gardens and attached coral to iron frames to promote the flow of water and nutrients and to encourage coral to grow faster than it would naturally. Guests at the resort can now contribute to on-going reef conservation by adopting one of these coral frames from the resort’s website. By purchasing a small frame at $100, a medium frame at $200, or a large frame at $400, you can help save our oceans!
