Wild and wonderful


Given cruising is all about the experience of being on or near the water, it makes sense for the industry to want to safeguard and protect the medium that sustains it. A number of cruise operators have formed meaningful partnershi­ps with the likes of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) to protect marine species and their habitats. For Royal Caribbean, that means working together with WWF-Australia to safeguard the hawksbill turtle from the illegal turtle trade by ending demand for tortoisesh­ell products, breaking the supply chain and protecting them into the future. It is also assisting with the developmen­t of a ShellBank that collects DNA from tor toiseshell products and uses the informatio­n gathered to launch targeted conservati­on initiative­s. royalcarib­
