Protecting Paradise: Rosalie Bay Eco Resort & Spa’s Commitment to Turtle Conservation

In the heart of Dominica lies a sanctuary for both travelers seeking serenity and majestic sea turtles in need of protection. Rosalie Bay Eco Resort & Spa stands as a beacon of sustainable tourism, nestled along the shores of Rosalie turtle nesting beach. Here, amidst the whispers of the sea and the rustle of palm trees, visitors embark on a journey not just of relaxation, but of contribution to a greater cause.

Dominica, known for its lush landscapes and vibrant marine life, hosts a diverse array of sea turtle species, including leatherbacks, greens, and hawksbills. Every year, these magnificent creatures return to the shores of Rosalie Bay to nest, an awe-inspiring spectacle of nature that serves as a reminder of the interconnectedness of all living beings.

However, alongside the tranquility of this pristine paradise lurks a growing threat: plastics. The theme of this Earth Day, “Planet Vs Plastics,” resonates deeply with the mission of Rosalie Bay. The resort recognizes the devastating impact that plastic pollution has on marine ecosystems, with millions of sea creatures falling victim to its effects each year.

In response, Rosalie Bay Eco Resort & Spa is reaffirming its commitment to turtle conservation and environmental stewardship. As part of Earth Day initiatives, the resort will continue its beach cleanup activities, extending its efforts to a turtle nesting beach in the southeastern village of Laplaine.

The focus is clear: to ensure that these vital nesting grounds remain pristine and free of plastics, providing a safe haven for sea turtles to thrive and bolster their populations. By joining forces with the local community and visitors alike, Rosalie Bay aims to make a tangible difference in the protection of these majestic creatures.

On April 20th, from 9 AM to 12 PM, guests are invited to participate in the resort’s beach cleanup event. Together, we can play our part in safeguarding the future of sea turtles and preserving the natural beauty of Dominica’s coastline. From collecting debris to raising awareness, every action counts in the fight against plastic pollution.

At Rosalie Bay Eco Resort & Spa, sustainability isn’t just a buzzword—it’s a way of life. By choosing to vacation here, guests not only find solace and rejuvenation but also become stewards of the environment, leaving behind a positive impact that resonates far beyond the shores of Rosalie Bay.

Join us as we stand in solidarity with Mother Nature, protecting paradise one turtle at a time. Together, we can make a difference and ensure that future generations will continue to marvel at the wonders of Dominica’s coastal treasures.
