Marine Marvels In the Maldives
Follow turtle hatchlings and witness a mass coral spawning at
Six Senses Laamu
Up for some unforgettable wildlife encounters? Over the coming months, thousands of green sea turtle hatchlings will emerge from their nests and scuttle down the beach towards the Indian Ocean at Six Senses Laamu. Guests who sign up for this experience needn’t be worried about missing the action as they will be notified by the resident turtle biologist that the nestwatch cameras have spotted a nest hatching.
The marine spectacle doesn’t stop there, as a mass coral spawning event is scheduled to happen on Six Senses Laamu’s house reef in the coming months. The resort’s marine biology team, the Maldives Underwater Initiative (MUI), is currently studying coral spawning to an extent never investigated before in the Maldives. Guests can join the team, armed with torches and cameras, to watch as the most abundant species of coral spawns and naturally repopulates the reef.
During the Summer holidays, meanwhile, the Junior Marine Biology programme provides children with the opportunity to experience an education not usually covered in mainstream curriculum. sixsenses.com
