We are very proud to introduce SCIE:NCE, which is scheduled to launch at Soneva Jani later this year. Short for Sustainability and Conservation of Island Ecosystems: Nurturing Collaborative Endeavours, this state-of-the-art centre will be the first of its kind in the Maldives – not only will it be a place of learning and enrichment for our guests, but it will also support our ongoing conservation efforts and become a regional hub for environmental research, education and innovation.
Focusing on areas including marine and terrestrial ecology, sustainability and conservation, its facilities will include a research lab, coral propagation centre, field study areas, lecture room and library.
Overseen by Dr Bart Knols, funding for SCIE:NCE will come from grants and donations. If you would like to support the project, contact Dr Knols at [email protected]. All donors will receive a credit worth 50% of their donation towards a future Soneva stay.
