Reethi Beach Resort in the Maldives is proud to announce that Baa Atoll has been recognized as a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve.

The status was bestowed on the atoll on April 23 in recognition of the outstanding natural values of Baa Atoll, through the extensive work done by Reethi Beach Resort and the commitments made by local communities and other Maldives resorts.

Reethi Beach Resort has made a huge commitment to environmental issues, most recently participating in the celebration of Earth Day, on April 22, 2012, when resort volunteers and resort guests planted 50 coconut palms and other trees on the island of Veyofushi on Baa Atoll. The island is being developed for agricultural purposes, and the 50 coconut palms and other trees were planted on the southern stretch of the island.
