30K for World Oceans Day - We are paddling 30km for Charity
(and lots more!) 

A Park Hyatt Team of 10 will take part in a 30km kayak relay visiting 3 focus villages in an effort to raise awareness for marine conservation and sustainability.

Events preceeding World Oceans Day include:

•Promoting marine conservation with 3 x schools on our neighbouring islands
• Promoting sustainability and marine conservation to guests of Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa
•Reef clean of two neighbouring islands

All proceeds will go to The Coral Reef Alliance.

The Route:

Why is Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa taking part in world Ocean Day?

The world’s oceans:
• Generates most of the oxygen we breathe
• Help feed us
• Regulate our climate
• Clean the water we drink
• Offer a pharmacopoeia of potential medicines
• Provide limitless inspiration!

A big thanks to all supporters from PharEEL and his Coral Reef pals!

9 days to go!

Training is underway and the challenge has become very real. What we had hoped would take 6 hrs is now looking like minimum 10, not helped by our choice of equipment!

We will, of course, persevere and shall not be defeated.

A massive thanks to those who have donated thus far. Please keep it up and we'll hit our target.
