Diamonds Resorts Thudufushi and Athuruga Welcomes Dr. Charles Anderson

PUBLISHED May 06, 2018

Diamonds Resorts Maldives (Thudufushi & Athuruga) understand the importance of the marine life that surrounds the islands and is proud to have many initiatives in place to help the environment. Indeed, amongst other things, the resorts produce their own water in glass bottles to minimise the use of plastic bottles on the islands. 

Both resorts also have resident marine biologists on site to provide information during excursions and deliver weekly marine biology presentations to their guests, as well as a long time partnership with the University of Milano Bicocca to conduct research on the marine life

In this context, the resorts also seek to welcome other experts to offer special presentations to their guests. In April 2018, both resorts had the privilege of welcoming Dr. Charles Anderson for an evening presentation on whales and dolphins of the Maldives. Dr. Anderson is a UK-trained marine biologist living in the Maldives since 1983. 

Author of the book "Reef Fishes of the Maldives", Dr. Anderson has conducted extensive research on Maldivian fishery over the years and also has research interests in cetaceans, sharks, sea birds, and insects. Dr. Anderson operates the "Whale and Dolphin Company" in the Indian Ocean. He is a foremost authority on both the whales, dolphins and the fishes in the Maldives, and a pioneer of whale and dolphin watching in the region. In 1995, he was awarded the "President of Maldives Award for Service to Fisheries".
