Redang Island Conservation Day 2018 @ The Taaras Beach & Spa Resort

The actual event that will commence from 26th April 2018 – 29th April 2018

It is always great when I can do something to preserve the nature. Last two years I've joined the Tioman Island Conservation Day (TICD 2016 & TICD2017) by Berjaya Tioman Resort and it was fun where I get to explore the underwater world and contribute to conserve the nature at the same time. This time they are having their first conservation project at Redang Island.

During the press conference, I was amazed with the underwater drone that can capture 360 view of the underwater world. They will use this technology to document the conservation project and I hope to see the final outcome. Due to tight schedule that I have, I am not able to join RICD this time. However, I do hope it won't take too long for me to go back The Taaras again and help check out the conservation program! I miss the friends (and turtle Jojo) there!

This event will be called Redang Island Conservation Day (RICD). RICD was brought to life after receiving a huge amount of support from our partners, sponsors, divers, non-divers, and members of the media. Mr. Peter Neto, General Manager of The Taaras Beach & Spa Resort urges everyone to ‘Think globally, act locally’. It is a phrase used for decades in various contexts, yet, applicable to our cause which are marine environment and hospitality. Our industry builds stunning properties in the remotest of locations, attracting many from far afield, who take back home tales from their travels. To protect local marine life is to ensure that visitors from all over the world can continue to enjoy the stunning natural beauty of Malaysia for generations to come.

As members of a global community, taking care of our increasingly fragile marine environment is important. The use of technology will help us to understand, educate ourselves and others further with the amazing imagery that we will capture and inspire us to do more.”

Dato' Simon Foong, Group Managing Director & Chairman of Aquawalk Sdn Bhd commented, “Aquaria KLCC has been working to raise awareness of the plight of our oceans and the urgent need for marine conservation with the public from educational activities in our oceanarium, school outreach programs, and through campaigns such as this. We are proud to work alongside our partners here today to protect our future”.

The participants of RICD comprise of both divers and non-divers from all over Malaysia and they are all driven by the same passion which is to protect local marine life and preserve mother nature. RICD have selected certain parts of the area conducive enough for corals and marine life to breed and will be submerging five units of coral structures which will be custom made by The Taaras Beach & Spa Resort’s team using recycled materials.

The structure designs were provided by RICD’s partner Malaysia New Zealand Chamber of Commerce (MNZCC). MNZCC organized an online reef design competition which took place from 15 January 2018 – 28th February 2018 in order to get the public to contribute their design ideas of coral structures that are diver- friendly and can be made of recycled materials. The winners of this competition were announced during the RICD press conference.

The non-divers on the other hand will be doing their part to preserve mother nature by cleaning up the beach as much as they can and ensuring that washed up trash from the ocean is fully cleaned from the beach to prevent it from going back to the sea which could affect the growth of the corals and endanger the marine life that is living around the area.

Malaysia is one of the most affluent countries in the South-East Asia region. Its growth has been influenced by its abundant and rich coral reef and shallow tropical marine resources. Most of the development that is occurring in Malaysia is concentrated in the narrow coastal zone, making this a key area in the issues affecting the sustainability of this development. The coastal zone environments, including coral reefs, are exposed to a suite of anthropogenic impacts and threats. This coastal zone is not limited to the maritime areas of the mainland, but instead extends to cover the multitude of islands including Redang Island.

It is through this objective that we have and hold dearly to our hearts, have made Redang Island Conservation Day 2018 a reality with the help of our main partners and sponsors. We hope to continue this legacy in years to come as well.
