Coral Reef Restoration and Marine Environmental Consulting
Reefscapers is an independent marine consultancy, established in the Maldives in the year 2000
Conservation, eco-tourism and coastal management combine into pioneering marine biology programmes for island resorts
Coral Reef Restoration
Reefscapers has been involved in coral reef restoration projects in the Maldives since 2005, with our pioneering and ground-breaking coral frame techniques.
Targeted primarily at island-based resorts to improve the general health of the natural coral reefs, Reefscapers is creating guest-oriented activities through snorkeling trails and marine life education. By offering the most advanced coral propagation programme with long term monitoring, maintenance and support to sustain the projects, Reefscapers now ranks among the most successful marine conservation plan of its type in the world.
Resort Marine Biology Programmes
Reefscapers recruited the first resort marine biologists in the Maldives back in 2008, implementing long-term marine conservation projects to increase guest awareness through marine life activities and to improve the island’s natural environment.
These sustainable programmes range from marine biology excursions and coral reef rejuvenation, to the creation of sea turtle sanctuaries and environmental impact projects.
Resort Marine Centres
Reefscapers established the first sea turtle rescue and rehabilitation centre in the Maldives in 2011 – our Marine Discovery Centre at Four Seasons Resorts Landaa Giraavaru.
For almost a decade, our team of dedicated international marine scientists have studied and developed multiple conservation programmes throughout the Maldives to protect the marine environment. As a result, hundreds of injured turtles have been successfully rescued, rehabilitated and released, increasing awareness of sea turtle biology, and encouraging active participation from tourists and resorts around the Maldives.
Marine Environment Consultancy
At Reefscapers, we combine our experience in coastal protection and marine ecology combined with engineering backgrounds to deliver quality customised services.
We develop solutions to many environmental challenges, from resort beach erosion to local solid waste management. We carry out data collection and feasibility studies to produce environmental impact assessments, and offer bespoke engineering and software solutions.
Available for short contracts and long-term projects in the Maldives and internationally.
SPONSOR A CORAL FRAME ONLINE
Reefscapers allows you to sponsor your own coral frame online, ordered from your home and placed in your desired lagoon in the Maldives. You can dedicate your corals to someone special, and our team of marine biologist will carry out the transplantation work and add your personalised frame to the reef ecosystem.
Sponsors receive bi-annual photo updates of their growing corals and all the data will be accessible from our website. All proceeds go into our environmental “Reefscapers Foundation”, established in France to support marine conservation programmes worldwide.
