OZONE and Best Dives Maldives invites you to join renowned marine biologists and our own Ms. Caterina Fattori for a learning afternoon on coral ecology, where you’ll have the opportunity to plant new corals.
Date: 27th October 2016
Time: 4:00 pm
Dr. Nicole Kube and Dr. Mirko Becker from The German Oceanographic Museum (Deutsches Meeresmuseeum), are here to train guests and hosts on coral ecology, the importance of biodiversity, threats to coral reefs, techniques to transplant corals and strategies for restoration.
OZONE (Outrigger’s ZONE) is a global conservation initiative centered on protecting the health of coral reefs and the oceans surrounding the iconic beach destinations of Outrigger Resorts. Over 60% of the world’s coral reefs are under immediate threat from climate change, overfishing and land-based pollution. OZONE is an action plan to make a positive impact on reef conservation.
OZONE generates awareness and enhances the guest experience through interaction and learning. Guests of Outrigger Resorts may view in-room videos, attend on-property lectures, and participate in community activities like coral planting.
OZONE was launched in 2015 in celebration of World Oceans Month and in partnership with government, private industry, and conservation organizations worldwide. We encourage you to browse these websites and visit the local aquariums we support on your next trip to an Outrigger Resort.
