At Home wih Six Senses – Junior Marine Biology Program

Six Senses have launched their At Home with Six Senses program, which offers proactive and pragmatic ways for people to care for themselves and people they love in a range of formats. The content is available to everyone, whether or not they have previously stayed at a Six Senses property, and it is structured around the brand’s key wellness pillars – Mindfulness, Eat, Sleep, Move, Live Naturally and Connect.

As part of this initiative, Six Senses Laamu has launched the home-based Junior Marine Biology Program for budding conservationists. Sad to not be greeting their usual students on the beautiful shores of Six Senses Laamu, the resort’s team of marine biologists will host short videos and demonstrate activities that anyone can try at home. The course is open to everyone and there will be content available and suitable for all ages. The team is expecting some special events over the next few weeks on the island, including turtle hatching in May, which they will do their best to stream.

Each week, the team will take turns to introduce manta rays, corals, turtle and reef fish. Families can explore seagrass and mangroves and learn how they are vital habitats for supporting a diversity of marine life. Broader topics cover science research, sustainability and how to stay involved over the longer term.

Although the structure, by necessity, is slightly different to what children might enjoy on vacation in the Maldives, the objective is the same. It aims to help foster an understanding of marine biology and see first-hand the importance of marine conservation.

The resources will remain online via https://www.sixsenses.com/en/junior-marine-biology so that families can start the program when they like. Students will be encouraged to share their “homework” by email to marine-laamu@sixsenses.com
