At Plantation Island Resort, the community we live in and the environment we prosper under are important to us. That’s why we support a number of environmental and sustainability initiatives throughout the resort, to protect and improve our beloved Fiji.
Fiji’s coral reefs, like those around the world, are under immense stress from the impacts of pollution, invasive species, and the climate crisis. Plantation Island’s coral gardening project, in partnership with Corals for Conservation, aims to bring attention to this issue by getting guests involved in the restoration and protection of the coral reefs surrounding the Resort.
Guests can learn how coral grows and propagates and get involved in the conservation process by rooting coral fragments onto artificial cords for propagation and replanting.
Our coral nurseries are then scattered all around the reefs surrounding Malolo Lai Lai Bay, allowing them to grow in their natural environment before being transplanted onto the reefs themselves.
Trap Neuter Release with Animals Fiji
Plantation Island Resort is proud to work with Animals Fiji on their Trap Neuter Release program. This program allows us to ensure that the stray cats and dogs of Malolo LaiLai Island are responsibly desexed, to prevent invasive species adversely impacting on local flora and fauna. We also feed them regularly, ensuring Fiji’s native small birds and rodents are kept safe.
Say no to plastic
At Plantation Island Resort, we’ve cut out a number of unnecessary plastic from the premises. From straws for your cocktail to bags for your souvenirs, you’ll no longer be offered these non-reusable plastics on your stay with us.
Instead, paper straws will be available from our bars and restaurants upon request. Help us eradicate straw use altogether by drinking straight from the glass, or if you need a straw, kindly request a paper one from our friendly staff. Since we first eradicated plastic straws in October 2018, we’ve already prevented the use of approximately 130,000 plastic straws – straws that may well have ended up in our pristine oceans.
As for carry bags, every guest and staff member will be offered a reusable canvas shopping bag to use for the duration of your stay at the Resort. Use it to bring gifts, souvenirs, and the always-necessary extra sunscreen back from our general store to your room, or bring them with you on your adventures around the islands so you’ll always have a carry bag on hand.
