Outrigger Resorts launched new program that targets preservation of coral reefs located in the waters that surround Outrigger Resorts. Named OZONE (Outrigger’s ZONE), the new program will target coral health as that is an important element of underwater life. According to the data posted by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOOA), every year coral reefs produce 15 tons of seafood per square kilometer. However, nowadays coral reefs suffer from many negative factors, such as climate change or pollution, or unsustainable fishing. These factors ruin the ecosystem of underwater life and have negative impact on environment.
During the OZONE campaign, guests of Outrigger Resorts will learn more about coral reefs and underwater life through a series of in-room videos and special lectures held at resorts. Some hotels will offer on-site activities as well, such as planting corals. In order to make that possible, Outrigger launched partnership with NOAA, Reef Conservation in Mauritius, Polynesian Voyaging Society (PVS), the Waikiki Aquarium in Hawaii, and Underwater World in Guam.
