The IUCN Maldives Marine Project, endorsed by the government of Maldives, hopes to develop a framework to help resorts manage their marine environment by establishing Marine Managed Areas.

The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) is the oldest and largest global non-profit environmental organisation in the world and it has selected Ari Atoll as the demonstration atoll for this project. We at Halaveli are excited to have been chosen as one of the resorts taking part.

This week Senior Project Officer, Patrick Svensson PhD, and Marine Biologist, Barbara, will be arriving at Halaveli. They will be working closely with our dive centre to conduct extensive house reef and resort reef system surveys.

The data collected will then be used to create a reef habitat map to illustrate areas of coral cover, diversity and resilience to aid us in managing and maintaining our precious reefs.

Protecting the environment of Halaveli

At Halaveli looking after the natural wonders of our environment is very important to us so that we can pass this beautiful region on to the next generation in tact.

That is why we are also currently working with Valmont and Water Solutions on a coral growth program in the waters around Constance Halaveli.
