Protecting French Polynesia’s precious natural beauty and biodiversity is central to our company’s sustainability mission, and we collaborate with multiple conservation organizations to ensure that our surroundings, both terrestrial and marine, are preserved for generations to come.
Our property-based Conservation and Community funds support research and sustainable management of our biodiversity resources.
On-site marine nurseries and coral restoration projects supplement our marine conservation and guest education efforts. Partnerships with organizations like Reef Check, Biorock, and CRIOBE help expand and enhance our efforts.
In cooperation with our non-profit partner, Tetiaroa Society, The Brando has helped develop a Conservation and Management Use Plan for the entire Tetiaroa Atoll, including the lagoon and its marine ecosystems as well as its terrestrial island motu habitats.
Guests of The Brando enjoy immersive naturalist tours to the habitats of Tetiaroa Atoll, led by expert biologists and researchers from Tetiaroa Society. Guests are also welcome to visit the on-site EcoStation to learn about on-going scientific research.
With Te mana o te moana, we have set up a program to monitor the nesting of green sea turtles. The program conducts crucial research to evaluate the impact of predators and climate changes.
Guests are welcome to attend an educational presentation on marine ecology and sea turtle conservation at the Turtle Care Center at the InterContinental Moorea Resort & Spa.
