This World Oceans Day, we're focused on the coral. With some small changes, we can all do our part to protect and preserve the coral reefs that support thousands and thousands of species of fish, sea turtles, marine mammals, invertebrates, birds and plants. Humans also need reefs to survive—the ocean's reefs protect our coastlines from storms and erosion, and they provide food, income and protection for millions of people around the world.
And they need our help.
Here's how you can join the effort to save our coral reefs now—and have a chance to win in our luxury-stay giveaway!
Join a Beach Cleanup Day
Outrigger is partnering with an organization called Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii to host a group beach cleanup event on June 26! This is the ultimate experience in sustainable travel that allows visitors to "give back" to the beautiful natural setting that they are relaxing in. Outrigger is also hosting community OZONE (Outrigger's ZONE) conservation and cleanup activities throughout its properties in places like Fiji and Mauritius.
Stay at Outrigger During Your Next Tropical Getaway
How you travel matters. We've made conservation a core principle that dictates how we care for our guests. Across our Outrigger Resorts, hosts have pledged to offer more sustainable accommodations by eliminating single-use plastics such as straws and providing All Good free reef-safe sunscreen at our pool decks. At Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort, we've made the switch to metal water bottles and have added water stations on every floor and lobby for guests to fill up. We've also upgraded thermostats at the property to save energy while continuing to provide a cool (and modern!) guest experience.

Get the Kids Involved
World Oceans Day is a family holiday! It's never too early to teach kids about conservation with fun activities like creating nature journals while visiting the beach, composing poems about nature and taking "litter" hikes. Turning a beach vacation into a lesson in conservation ensures that preserving nature will be like second nature for the upcoming generation.
This June, the islands are alive with conservation activities in honor of our planet's beautiful oceans and reefs. When you hang around town with Outrigger, that means everything from sipping some coral-supporting cocktails to making kai kupe'e bracelets using salvaged fishing ropes. Join us in protecting our world's valuable, life-giving and irreplaceable reefs all while having fun!
