MALE—Siyam World Maldives is committed to promoting sustainability and preserving the beauty of our oceans, protecting marine life, and reducing the environmental impact in line with Sun Siyam Resorts’ group-wide sustainability program Sun Siyam Cares.
Siyam World continues to drive sustainability initiatives forward with the most significant project being a coral restoration effort in their house reef. The coral frames are carefully put in place by resort staff and guests, providing habitat for broken coral pieces and allowing them to grow into an artificial reef structure. The in-house local Marine Biologist Thuhu and her team take care of the coral, ensuring full growth potential and increasing the coral and fish population in the resort’s house reef. Through the coral restoration initiative, guests can actively engage in conserving Maldives’ natural resources, by planting corals and learning how to interact with the environment responsibly.
Additionally, Siyam World hosts weekly Marine Workshops that cover essential sustainability topics around coral health, marine biodiversity, and the Maldivian marine ecosystems, providing guests with an excellent opportunity to learn more about marine life conservation.
‘It is Our Responsibility’
“We are extremely proud to launch this coral restoration project as part of our commitment to sustainability,” said Ausy Waseem, the Resort Manager of Siyam World Maldives. “We believe that it is our responsibility to protect and preserve the natural beauty of the Maldives for generations to come and are delighted to offer our guests the opportunity to participate in this important initiative and contribute to the preservation of our planet.”
Additionally, tree planting is another key element of the resort’s sustainability program. The resort plants trees to address issues like deforestation and climate change. Trees absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, help combat climate change, and provide valuable wildlife habitats. Siyam World’s tree-planting initiative supports the protection and regeneration of natural habitats, leading to a more sustainable environment.
Siyam World’s sustainability initiatives are vital in reducing the resort’s environmental impact. Through marine workshops, reef clean-ups, tree planting, and sustainability information sessions, the resort inspires guests to contribute to conservation efforts actively.
