Royal Island, in collaboration with the Baa Atoll Council and Baa Atoll Biosphere Reserve, hosted a reef cleaning event at Eydhafushi Island as part of the World Oceans Day event. The initiative, led by the DiveOceanus dive center at Royal Island, promoted marine conservation and community engagement within the Baa Atoll region.

The Parley registered clean-up event brought together dive centers from neighboring resorts and local islands. Experienced divers undertook the underwater clean-up, ensuring the reef and marine habitats were cleared of debris, while students from the Eydhafushi School Environment Club managed the beach clean-up and waste sorting, promoting environmental awareness and community involvement.

More than 120 participants, including divers and students, joined the clean-up effort on June 7th 2024. Key participants include the Eydhafushi Council, Baa Atoll Biosphere Reserve, Eydhafushi Police, and Eydhafushi School, among others. Parley Maldives supported the event by providing collection bags for efficient waste disposal.
