Kuramathi Maldives initiated a clean up of the house reef and the iconic Kuramathi sandbank last week, in observance of World Environment and World Oceans Day. Other highlights include a documentary screening of our Blue Planet and educational activities for the kids at Bageecha Kids Club.
Apart from honouring our environment, the purpose of these activities are to aim to protect two essential resources that provide major sources of food and oxygen to the planet. The World Environment day was a success as the event included educating the kids about the impact of air pollution and what they can do to prevent it. After creating handcrafts, the kids visited the Hydroponic Garden to plant herbs for the Green Wall by recycling empty plastic bottles. In the afternoon, all the volunteers gathered at the sandbank to pick up trash, and everyone was rewarded with fresh coconuts.
Some of the guests along with Rasdhoo Divers team, collected about five bags of rubbish from the ocean floor and during sunset, the Kids Club Team made sand sculptures about the ocean at the sandbank. We capped off World Oceans Day with an episode of One Ocean, Blue Planet at Fung Bar and Laguna Bar. Kuramathi Maldives hopes that these projects will generate consciousness and alter to assist maintain our oceans and the environment.
