Aleenta Resorts releases baby turtles and commits to long-term conservation Project
Phuket, Thailand – Guests at the exclusive Aleenta Phuket–Phang Nga resort were given the chance of a lifetime recently to help save indigenous turtles when they released 20 endangered baby leatherback turtles into the Andaman Sea.
I come back to you after a while to inform you that the Aleenta’s Coral Reef is done.
I’m sending you the video that we did during our work on site. As well, you will receive very soon an intermediate report with all the technical and biological data of the park. You will find the pictures of every corals and fish species living on the reef…
We were not very lucky with the weather; after you lived Phangnga, it rained every evening, decreasing the visibility in the water. That’s why the clarity of the video is not ideal… However, the ecological and biological results of the reef are as expected. The health of the 24 grafted coral species is pretty good, and we observed more than 30 different fish species around the reef (and this number will continue to increase with the time…).
Moreover, the solar panel is working well, we already observed an acceleration of corals healing and fixation… That's a nice success knowing that it's the first time in the world that solar energy is used for increase recovery and growth of corals (and not normal electricity which is produced by burning petrol...).
I already booked to come back in Aleenta from the 5th May to th 8th May, in order to realize the first follow up and monitoring check.
As we wrote in the rapport, it would be good to do an update, which would consist of an addition of 4 tones of live rocks placed around the reef, thus increasing the size of the available habitat as the visibility of the water…
Wishing that you are satisfied by our collaboration, I’m confident about the good development of this Aleenta’s Coral Reef.

The 2 solar panels and the electrical installation are operational. Not to lose any precious time, we already bought all the iron necessary to make the structures and the raw material to make live rocks.
