Maldives Conservation Project

Maldives Conservation Project

Posted by Connor Whelan on Jun 21, 2016

Lying just south of India and Sri Lanka is a pristine island paradise, the Republic of Maldives. The stereotypical image of white-sand beaches and crystal-clear waters that you picture in your daydreams is essentially a snapshot of this magnificent country famed for its marine life. However, as is happening all over the world, it is becoming more and more difficult to protect marine life from the impact of humanity. Maldives Conservation Projects are intended to spread awareness and make a direct contribution to protecting these sacred shores.

Home to countless marine and coral reef species, this far-flung country draws thousands of visitors each year to explore beneath the waves. Many people are also lucky enough to see some of the true wonders of the area – manta rays and whale sharks. Maldives Conservation Projects offer vital levels of protection for this immaculate, but fragile ecosystem. With increasing tourism levels and rising global water temperatures, reefs are more threatened than ever, and those coral reefs provide homes for thousands of species of fish. If you choose to make your vacation something truly special, and give back to this incredibly beautiful part of the world, you can make a positive impact on a true natural wonder. Whether you are tracking reef populations or contributing to sea turtle conservation efforts, the vulnerable species of the Maldives can use your help.

Many people think of vacation as a time to relax in an exotic locale, yet it can be much more rewarding to know that you are not only enjoying that destination, but also helping to preserve it for years to come. Click here for more information on how Maldives Conservation Projects can take you on the trip of a lifetime, while also letting you assist in the global effort to protect our planet.
