It was a heavy downpour this morning, but it didn’t stop 95 Sutera Harbour Resort staff and management as well as recreational boaters from participating in the “Citizen Science Outreach Program on Climate Change Adaptation” held at Sutera Harbour Marina & Country Club.
Together with Borneo Marine Research Institute of Universiti Malaysia Sabah (BMRI-UMS), organising this program at the Resort proved to be fruitful as we had a very interactive knowledge transfer about marine biodiversity and adaptations to climate change.
Professor Datin Seri Panglima Dr. Ann Anton, Head of Unit of Harmful Algal Bloom Studies (BMRI-UMS) and her team members Dr. Ejria Saleh, Dr. John Barry Gallagher and Dr. Mabel Manjaji provide insights, recommendations and guidelines to reduce climate change impacts. They also demonstrated water quality measurements and marine biodiversity species identification at our marina pontoon.
This program is in conjunction with the Celebration of the Sea 2015 on World Ocean Day and Coral Triangle Day across the globe to recognise the importance of the world’s oceans and the efforts to improve our oceans’ health.
Reiterating our commitment to Sutera Harbour Resort’s core value “Protect the Environment”, we are proud to be the first member of the tourism industry to implement this awareness and outreach initiative on climate change and marine biodiversity.
