How can you get involved?
Small steps can make a big difference. Something everyone can do is use "reef-safe" sunscreens like those that we've had at our resorts since 2014. Some chemicals in common sunscreen brands can be harmful to coral reefs and marine environments. Fortunately, there are mineral sunscreens that reflect the sun’s rays using ingredients like zinc oxide or titanium dioxide that are safe for our ocean environment.
