One of the highlights of the celebration was the coral restoration initiative, together with Ocean  Ripple. Established in 2007, Shangri-La Mactan has taken immense pride in its 6-hectare marine sanctuary with over 160 species of fish, clams, and coral. The team, together with concerned nature warriors worked individually and collectively to launch regular coastal and dive clean-ups as well as coral recovery programs.

But due to the wrath of Typhoon Odette, communities, the resort — including the treasured wildlife sanctuary, were all left in ruins. The Shangri-La family believes that one must live in harmony with nature, and one has a lifelong responsibility to care for the environment. In line with their commitment to biodiversity conservation, the team will be launching a campaign to revive the deep blues. Shangri-La aims to return the sanctuary to its original state by planning programs and consistent cleanups, together with key individuals and organizations. Earth Hour is the perfect avenue to kickoff such campaign initiative.
