Turtle conservation
July 2017 288

IN line with Anantara Hotels, Resorts and Spas’ philosophy that environmental responsibility begins at home, Anantara Peace Haven Tangalle Resort in Sri Lanka has joined forces with the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). The collaboration is set to implement methods to protect and conserve the globally threatened marine turtles.

The project will work to enhance conservation of the various species of marine turtles that visit the beach at Anantara Tangalle and will extend to over 100 kilometres of surrounding coastline. The project will recreate a conducive healthy coastal habitat within the resort premises by improving the physical landscape with environmentally acceptable interventions that will also attract native coastal species. The overall aim is to raise awareness of marine turtle conservation among the hotels guests, its staff and the local community with the construction of an ecological education and visitor centre.

The conservation project is funded by the Anantara “Dollars for Deeds” programme, which engages guests in the spirit of giving back and matches each guest’s donation dollar for dollar to raise funds for worthy causes. By choosing to donate $1 per night, Anantara guests not only enjoy a luxurious stay, rich in discovery, but take away wonderful memories of their experiences knowing that they made a positive difference to the local environment and community.
