3 Reasons Why Anthony’s Key Resort Is the Best Environmentally Friendly Vacation
1. Our Sustainable Mission
We adhere to our sustainable mission by following through with internal policies, offering educational programs, and supporting several local and international organizations in their conservation efforts. Some of our practices include:
- Pioneering solar energy in Roatan
- Implementing a coral reef nursery program
- Offering the Project Aware specialty course to all of our PADI-certified guests
- Avoiding single-use plastics
- Conserving water
2. Wildlife Preservation
One of the most popular attractions to visit during your stay with us is the animal rescue on Maya Key. Here, the animals are all donated, injured, or rescued with the intention of being rehabilitated and released back into the wild whenever possible. Maya Key also works with local NGOs such as the Roatan Marine Park with turtle rescues and releases and with BICA’s (Bay Islands Conservation Association) environmental education programs in local schools. Spreading awareness and sharing knowledge about endangered species is one of the best ways to promote the importance of practicing sustainability.
3. The Natural Beauty of Our Caribbean Destination
Ecotourism is a travel trend that promotes visiting exotic, natural environments to support conservation efforts and observe wildlife in their native habitats. Anthony’s Key Resort sets the scene for the ultimate eco-friendly adventure. Observe and admire the Great Mesoamerican Reef, the largest of its kind in the Western Hemisphere and the second-largest in the world. Surrounded by such stunning natural beauty, your love for the earth’s natural wonders will grow stronger.
