JA Manafaru Maldives hosted a beach cleanup session after collaborating with a local school and the Best Dives Private Limited.

As part of this drive, 23 “jumbo bags” of waste was collected from a neighboring island and Marine Protected Area — Gallandhoo for recycling through Parley Maldives.

Parley Maldives is the Maldives branch of Parley for the Oceans, a global collaboration network with a new approach to environmentalism. The mission of Parley is to end today’s major ocean threats through creativity, collaboration and eco-innovation.

School students and guests were presented with certificates of appreciation for their participation in the JA Manafaru event.

Commenting on the drive, Karen Merrick, the property’s GM said: “JA Manafaru in collaboration with our ocean activity partner Best Dives is committed to improving upon and reducing our environmental footprint here in Haa Alifu, one of the most uninhabited atolls in Maldives. We are honoured and humbled to live and work as custodians of this beautiful part of the world and assist with such initiatives whenever/wherever we can.  Every day we continue our internal mission to ensure education and awareness play a part of life here at JA Manafaru.”

Although the ocean and beach areas surrounding the resort are clean, other islands in the Maldives have issues with waste, particularly non- biodegradable materials like plastic.
