The Eco Centre organize once a month a brain storming to further develop their activities and actions and regularly participate to raise awareness and responsible behavior by educating the local communities.

Reef cleans up are often organized to maintain this fragile heritage visited by thousands people each weeks.

Kuramathi enters this small world with the installation of Solar panels to heat fresh water in Guest Villas and help to produce energy for the greedy air conditioners.
