Coral Restoration Project

Constance Moofushi actively supports green initiatives to manage impacts on the economy, society, and the unique environment of the Maldives. A key conservation effort is the Coral Restoration Project, established in 2017 to restore damaged reefs and barren seabeds by planting new corals underwater. This project aims to enhance marine ecosystems in the long term and encourages guest participation in protecting and nurturing the coral reefs around Moofushi Island.

Community Engagement and Education

The resort engages with local communities, particularly students, through educational programs, workshops, and activities to raise awareness about the region’s rich biodiversity. By organizing marine conservation classes on nearby islands like Himandhoo, Constance Moofushi empowers locals to become stewards of the marine environment crucial to their livelihoods. Collaborative efforts with schools, such as inviting students to participate in the Coral Restoration Project, foster a sense of responsibility and appreciation for marine habitats.

Protecting Sea Life and Biodiversity

To combat plastic pollution and safeguard local wildlife, Constance Moofushi collaborates with communities and schools to conduct regular beach clean-ups on Mathieveri and Himandhoo islands.
