As you know, Rosalie Bay Resort strives every day to protect our environment and educate the community about conservation – from using wind and solar energy, to organic and local ingredients and products, to protecting endangered sea turtles.
Therefore, we’re pleased to participate in the global Earth Hour event this Saturday, March 29. From 8:30 – 9:30 p.m., all non-essential lights at the resort will be turned off. Flashlights will be provided to guests and candles will be lit for dining at Zamaan restaurant.
For those unfamiliar, Earth Hour began six years ago to bring people around the world together for the common purpose of protecting our planet. Today, more than 7,000 cities, countries on 7 continents and hundreds of millions of people worldwide participate.
In addition to bringing people around a common mission, Earth Hour also encourages people to take action beyond the hour to create a sustainable future for the planet. Learn more with the video below.
But our commitment to protecting the planet extends beyond Earth Hour or even Earth Day on April 22. For us, every hour of every day we’re focused on the environment.
This April, we will celebrate “Earth Month.” We invite the community and guests to join us in our 2014 Earth Day efforts, which include a clean up of the beach and nearby hiking trails, and an educational seminar on sustainable cooking. More details coming soon.
If you’re not visiting us for Earth Month, don’t worry. There are many efforts you can join during your Dominica vacation. For example, if you visit during sea turtle season, March – October, you are invited to join us in our sea turtle conservation efforts.
