Tourism in small island nations such as the Maldives is so intrinsically dependent on the environment, it is in the interests of every operation to conserve, protect, enhance and understand valuable natural resources which underpin most operations. Marine Lab staff taking time out to talk to guests about the local ray population. Photo: Holly Tuppen. My new role as Group Director of Conservation has two aspects: first to strengthen the environmental operations and map the future strategy for conservation and research delivered by Banyan Tree Maldives Marine Labs, and second to create modules to integrate active guest participation into resort conservation efforts across the group.
As a global business with management or ownership interest in 37 resorts in 28 countries, we have the opportunity to gather informative data on multiple ecosystems coral reef, rainforest, mangrove, desert etc. This data can be collected at multiple levels of expertise, involving guests as citizen scientists, and the findings can be accessible and beneficial to the layperson, managers and scientists alike.
In much the same way as private businesses are now driving the exploration of space, business can also help to increase our understanding of the environment here on earth. In this regard, my role is to develop meaningful, quantitative and robust environmental sustainability initiatives in which everyone can participate.
Your appointment is a first for the group and considered quite pioneering for a hotel group — why has Banyan Tree taken this step? What is their motivation? As a socially responsible company, Banyan Tree was founded with the core value of sustainable development. Banyan Tree operates sustainably to the triple bottom line of society, environment and economics.
Green activities within the hospitality industry are increasingly becoming a baseline requirement and sustainability is being incorporated in to business operations to create shared value for business and society. I am excited about establishing our citizen science project, which provides the opportunity for guests to participate in the research being conducted on the health of the reefs and fish populations. Such projects benefit from the support and enthusiasm of visitors who spend so much time in the water, and they have the added benefit of requiring little to no training — just someone in the water and sometimes a camera.
There are many examples of citizen science in action, and there are programs that have been operating in coral reef regions for many years. They can provide valuable information on the status of the reefs, detecting changes such as bleaching, and counts of megafauna such as sharks or endangered fish species can reveal trends in populations over time.
