In 1999, Denis Schneider, a passionate marine biologist, created “Espace Bleu”, a company dedicated to protect and restore the coral life in the islands through coral nurseries.
Adjacent to Le Taha'a Island Resort & Spa, guests can enjoy a stunning coral garden. Aiming at protecting and preserving this amazing vibrant snorkeling area, we have joined the Espace Bleu’s Biorock© program.
Coral colonies in distress are identified and placed in a underwater nursery installation to recover. The Biorock© technique helps to activate the recalcifying process of the damaged corals, through electricity from solar energy. Once these are mature enough, biologists will reintroduce them into their natural habitat, hence repopulating reefs and coral gardens. Should you wish to help with this process, a fund has been created at Le Taha’a Island Resort & Spa and our team will be happy to give you more information.
A small fee is added to the guests’s invoices at the end of their stay. This fee is not mandatory and will be removed upon request at check-out.
Many times we get asked about how to help when visiting. This is a way to help us preserve our beautiful environment! This program is available at both Le Taha’a Island Resort & Spa and Bora Bora Pearl Beach Resort & Spa with the To’a Nui coral garden facing Mount Otemanu.
