(Posted 30th September 2017)
Serena Beach Resort & Spa was named the winner of the SDG 14: LIFE UNDER WATER award for its turtle conservation project at this year’s just concluded Eco Warrior Awards. The Turtle Hatchery project has been carefully nurtured over the last 14 years and has helped protect over 55,000 sea turtle eggs and over 400 sea turtle nests. It is for the second year running that the resort has won an EcoWarrior Award for their conservation work.
This year’s awards focused on how businesses in Kenya are contributing to the uptake of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SGDs). Ecotourism Kenya through the Ecowarrior awards seeks to identify businesses that have been able to translate the SDGs into their operations and can positively demonstrate and report tangible outcomes in their operations and impact on people, the planet as well as profits.
The Serena Beach Resort & Spa also has a Butterfly Conservation Project that hosts a Butterfly Park located within the resort grounds which is open to guests and local community who can get to learn more about butterfly conservation and Serena Hotels’ efforts in conservation.
Serena Hotels is progressively undertaking initiatives that enhance its social-cultural, economic, ecological and sustainable tourism business practices.
In addition to the award received by the Mombasa Serena has the Kilaguni Serena Safari Lodge in Tsavo National Park come up as 2nd Runners Up in recognition of their commitment and significant investment in renewable solar energy and reduction in its carbon footprint keeping in line with SDG 13: Climate Action
