Castaway continues coral planting

MES has applauded Castaway for the great work in restoring their coral reef ecosystem. The Castaway Island Resort in partnership with the Mamanuca Environment Society (MES) has planted corals covering a total reef area of 419.19km².

“Since 2015, Castaway together with MES have managed to replant or/and plant new corals,” Castaway manager, Steven Andrews, said. Mr Andrews made the comment while delivering his OZONE message to the guests.

Meanwhile, the Outrigger Group Resort’s mission is to mitigate the top three threats to coral reefs and involve guests in environment activities when on their property. Early this month, in-house guests, kids club, Malolo District School Environment class, staff and the MES partook in activities like coral planting, butterfly fish count, trash line game and coastal tree planting.
