Conservation at Kuramathi
The resort’s Eco Centre was established in 1999, and today is led by a team of professionals, including a resident marine biologist and horticulturist. The team provides guests with an enriching experience, ensuring they’re aware of proper snorkelling behaviour, and offering guided snorkelling safaris. They also offer visual presentations on the marine world, as well as kids’ conservation programs from the Bageecha Kids’ Club. Other programs include coral reef research, sea water temperature monitoring, and maintaining a coral nursery.
Community outreach is also a core value, and the resort provides employment opportunities to locals and works very closely with the Environment Club at Rasdhoo School. Staff also give regular presentations for the school children at the Eco Centre on varied subjects, from marine topics, to the protection of the ecosystem.
To enhance sustainability, the resort has a bottling plant providing drinking water in glass bottles instead of plastic. In addition, Kuramathi uses paper straws, refillable containers for guest toiletries, and all plastic waste is collected and sent for recycling. Greywater is treated, purified and reused in the resort’s gardens and flush tanks. Plus, staff use organic waste materials to produce compost for growing plants.
