New Marine Preservation Program at St. Regis Bora Bora

St Regis Bora Bora

The over-water villas at the St. Regis Bora Bora are uniquely situated for ogling the rich underwater life in the lagoon, full of native fish and sting rays. And the resort offers plenty of recreational activities (snorkeling, diving, ray feeding) for getting up close with the coral reef’s critters. But now the St. Regis Bora Bora is going one step further. The resort has teamed up with BoraEcoFish, an aquaculture company which focuses on sustainable marine development and environmental protection, on a new conservation initiative.

The new Maritime Preservation Program educates the resort’s guests on the importance of French Polynesia’s marine ecosystem through fun, educational activities and weekly seminars. A focus is the protection of the Napoleon fish, a highly endangered species, and the island’s sharks. Twenty shark species (of 400 listed in the world) inhabit the water surrounding Bora Bora, and many of them are endangered. The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort and BoraEcoFish have created a “Shark Park”—encompassing 150 square meters in the resort—for nurturing black fin and nurse sharks, and raising awareness about them.
