Coastal environment

The lagoon is undoubtedly one of the island’s most precious and genuine asset. This is the reason why Attitude true to its engagement, has chosen to contribute actively to the protection of the marine environment.

Green Attitude Foundation’s Ambassador

René Heuzey, well-known filmographer of marine life is our actual Green Attitude Foundation Ambassador. He is one of the directors of photography of Jacques Perrin’s and Jacques Cluzaud’s amazing film “Océans” as well as of Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s “Planète Océan”. In Mauritius, René Heuzey not only creates awareness and initiates but is involved in several projects concerning the protection of the environment and particularly of the marine ecosystem.

Nauticaz

In November 2010, Attitude inaugurated Nauticaz, in collaboration with the NGO Reef Conservation, its educational and interactive center totally dedicated to the richness of the local marine flora and fauna. Located at Sensimar Lagoon Mauritius, overlooking Anse la Raie lagoon, Nauticaz has welcomed more than 17,000 visitors, mainly school children, teachers and members of social associations. Nauticaz is equipped with an aquarium, a laboratory and a puppet theater staging the sea as main theme. On the program: introduction to marine biodiversity, educational films, glass bottom boat trips, discovery of the coral reef as well as of the mangroves and swamps together with their importance in our eco-system.
Since June 2014, with the financial help of Attitude and according to the “Marine Conservation Voluntary Zone”, an underwater snorkel trail has been created in the Anse la Raie lagoon, in front of Sensimar Lagoon Mauritius hotel. This marine zone has not only the deliberate support of coastal communities but also that of fishermen and tourist operators who also depend on the sea and its assets to earn their living. Mooring buoys have been placed in order to stop boats anchoring in this zone of the lagoon which is subject to safety norms.
This underwater snorkel trail has both a recreational and an educational vocation, it not only protects the seabed but generates awareness about the fragility and importance of the marine ecosystems. An official convention now regulates access to this protected zone as well as to the underwater snorkel trail.


Mangrove planting

In December 2015, Attitude was the hotel partner of “Climate Change Adaptation Program in the Coastal Zone of Mauritius” under the aegis of the Ministry of Environment, of Sustainable Development, Natural Disaster Management and Beach Authority financed by the Adaptation Fun Board. Attitude has been an active partner in 4 fields of this program, namely, the campaign on climatic changes, the promotion of substantial alternative subsistence along the coastal zone, the production of environmental films with René Heuzey, Attitude’s Green Foundation Ambassador and the equally important restauration of the mangrove by replanting.
