Resort in Maldives Offers Protection Code for Dolphins

Six Senses Laamu is the first resort in the Maldives to provide a code of conduct for dolphin watching as a way to protect the local spinner and bottlenose dolphins and their future generations.

Committed to sustainable business and eco-tourism, Six Senses Laamu established policies and procedures in line with the Green Globe 21 standards:  Energy Conservation, Waste Reduction, Nature, Island & Reef Protection, and Social Responsibility, which are renewed annually to ensure they are always current. 

The code of conduct for dolphin watching, rounds out the Six Senses Sustainability Policy for Six Senses Laamu: “To improve the ecological footprint of biodiversity conservation, preservation and restoration within the resort as well as nearby surrounding areas.” Pioneering its successful application this code has been implemented by Rachel Lambert, the resorts Resident Biologist.

Some specifics of the Six Senses Laamu Code of Conduct include keeping at least 50 meters away from the dolphins and allowing them to choose to approach the boat; no rapid changes in direction or speed of boat; do not chase the dolphins; and do not separate mothers from their calves.

Six Senses Laamu will also be celebrating Aqua Season, bringing together a vast array of water-focused activities which incorporate the surfing season’s International Surfing Day on June 20, 2013.
