In addition to the island resort's present sustainable tourism initiatives, Baros Maldives has developed a new internet component to spread awareness about the delicate marine ecosystem. Since 2006, Baros has been actively involved in coral restoration and planting to counteract the negative impacts of rising ocean temperatures on corals. As the globe celebrates Earth Day, Baros stays dedicated to encouraging sustainable tourism.
The island resort uses a variety of methods to encourage growth, including the use of nursery-like pools, suspended lines in the blue lagoon, the renowned Baros coral cubes, and customized frames with name tags and love messages. Visitors can get involved in the coral restoration project by sponsoring coral frames. 458 coral frames have received sponsorship to this point.
The Divers Baros Maldives team, referred to as the "Baros Underwater Ambassadors," has shared their favorite underwater stories, emphasizing the island resort's environmental initiatives and other helpful insights, as part of its impending 50th-anniversary festivities later this year in December.
Through the recently formed information hub, the Baros underwater ambassadors are passionate about educating visitors on safe water practices and disseminating information on sustainable tourism. With a focus on marine flora and fauna, characteristics of local marine creatures like Finny, the resident black-tipped shark, and the natural order of things underwater, the section's amusing short stories impart useful information in a fun and educational way.
The short stories raise readers' understanding of diving and snorkeling etiquette while also drawing comparisons between them and modern environmental movements like the circular economy. The portal also provides useful advice for snorkelers and divers, such as how to avoid disturbing the reef and contacting marine life like manta rays in order to protect their habitats and ensure their survival.
The underwater ambassadors from Baros share a wide variety of knowledge about the delicate marine ecosystem, its interconnection, and the natural equilibrium that is readily upset by human conduct. Visitors can read about these tales and encounters on the Baros website under each underwater ambassador's biography. Each underwater ambassador brings with them a cause important to their hearts and works to promote sustainable practices in the undersea realm related to that cause.
At Baros, visitors may learn more about these subjects from the underwater ambassadors while participating in a variety of aquatic activities, such as planting coral cubes and taking guided snorkeling and diving trips at the renowned Baros house reef and other secluded reefs teeming with abundant marine life. In order to lessen its influence on the environment, the private island resort has also adopted eco-friendly methods, such as using glass water and beverage bottles that can be filled and reused many times in addition to prohibiting plastic bags and substituting them with paper straws. Baros is still devoted to making advancements in sustainability while gradually enhancing its offerings.
