From community partners to international NGOs and government agencies, we value collaboration and partnership to advance conservation efforts. Check out our network:
The Maldives Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
The EPA is the main legal regulatory body for marine research as part of the Maldivian Governments Ministry of Environment & Energy. Permission to conduct research within the Maldives must be obtained from the EPA when the research is undertaken in a protected area or on a protected species. It is the EPA that create Marine Protected Areas in the Maldives. All outputs from the MWSRP are presented to the EPA.
Maldives Marine Research Insititute
The MRC oversees all marine research conducted in the Maldives. By disseminating research output, the MRC helps create public awareness of the beautiful marine environment of the Maldives and provide information that government decision-makers need to create ways to best protect it. All outputs from the MWSRP are presented to the MRC.

TME Retreats Dhigurah
We are very lucky to have a partnership with TME Retreats Dhigurah. Located on the beautiful inhabited island of Dhigurah, South Ari Atoll, TME is a four-star luxury and stylish beach hotel with all modern conveniences. Designed for maximum privacy, the hotel is located a little bit away from the village, yet close enough to walk and enjoy the island lifestyle of Maldives. Just a few meters away from the white sandy beach with a length of more than 3 km, you can have all the relaxation and enjoyment at the beach.
