Six Senses Laamu Increases Awareness of Turtles

On May 23, known as World Turtle Day, Six Senses Laamu Hotel implemented a new code of conduct on how to snorkel and dive with turtles and celebrated the identification of 100 different Hawksbill sea turtles on the atoll’s reefs. 

The identification process allows the marine team to closely monitor the population of turtles in the surrounding waters. 

The critically endangered animals play a key role in the coral reef ecosystem as they allow coral and other species to colonise and grow, maintaining diversity. With this initiative, the resort aims to increase awareness of turtles as well as conservation measures to protect them and their habitats.
