Bamboo sharks at MDC 3

S Hotels & Resorts collaborates with Phuket Marine Biological Center

S Hotels and Resorts PCL collaborates with Phuket Marine Biological Center (PMBC) to breed, care for and release bamboo sharks in southern Thailand.

Hosted by the Marine Discovery Centre at SAii Phi Phi Island Village, the new SOS (Save Our Sharks) programme will see S Hotels & Resorts work hand-in-hand with experts from PMBC. Together, they will oversee every stage of the bamboo sharks’ development, from incubating eggs and nurturing them at the resort’s Shark Nursery Pond, to releasing the juveniles back into their natural environment.

This is the latest in a series of campaigns led by the Marine Discovery Centre. This interactive hub houses indoor and outdoor exhibition areas, video rooms and aquariums, presenting a window into the underwater world and driving major projects such as coral propagation, mangrove planting, and breeding and release programmes for native fauna. The Marine Discovery Centre will nurture the bamboo sharks in its Shark Nursery Pond, before releasing them back into their natural environment.

In the Maldives, coral propagation efforts by the Marine Discovery Centre team at SAii Lagoon Maldives led to a ten-fold expansion of the local reef, and the return of hawksbill sea turtles, scalloped hammerhead sharks and bottlenose wedgefish to the area. A pregnant Olive Ridley Sea turtle was also found nesting on the beach in 2020 – the first recorded sighting of this species nesting in the Maldives.
