Adopt a Turtle at Aleenta


The Pure Blue Foundation and Aleenta Phuket Phang Nga, Thailand are offering the ultimate getaway with a conscience: a special ‘Catch and Release Adopt-a-Turtle’ Mini-Break’ that is centred around releasing an endangered turtle hatchling back into the wild – a rewarding life experience along with two days of culinary indulgence and pure barefoot luxury.

The resort, part of AKARYN Hotel Group, has launched the adopt-a-turtle experience to help a worthy cause that aims to tackle a species-threatening problem, while giving guests the chance to dig deep, give back and make a difference.

Guests wanting to do their bit for marine conservation can ‘adopt’ a turtle, receive regular updates leading up to their mini-break, then after the turtle is released, receive monthly updates on turtle conservation from Pure Blue Foundation, AKARYN Hotel Group’s social conscience and not-for-profit marine conservation charity.

Aleenta Phuket is located on the doorstep of one of the world’s most significant nesting grounds for the Green, Leatherback, Hawksbill and Olive Ridley turtles, all listed as endangered to critically endangered by the World Conservation Union.
