The Peregrine Fund

Club Med Michès Playa Esmeralda, Dominican Republic

Club Med Michès Playa Esmeralda partnered with non-profit organization, The Peregrine Fund, to raise awareness of endangered species endemic in the Dominican Republic via a hands-on workshop at the resort. During the captivating session, guests and staff learned about the endangered Ridgeway Hawk, unraveling its pivotal role in the Dominican Republic’s ecosystem. The session also shed light on The Peregrine Fund’s remarkable conservation efforts and allowed the group to forge real connections with two rescued hawks: Leo, a small Ridgeway Hawk, and Amazona, a Redtail Hawk. The Peregrine Fund, established in 1970, leads one of the most successful programs in the world dedicated to the conservation of birds of prey and their habitat. Their Ambassador Hawks initiative integrates birds of prey that are unable to return to the wild into impactful environmental educational programs. The collaborative workshop at Club Med Michès raised nearly $4,000 and is part of an ongoing financial commitment Club Med has made to the organization.

Coral Protection with Only Blue for Reef

Club Med Columbus, Bahamas

Club Med Columbus will expand environmental support through its partnership with Only Blue supporting them in their launch as an official NGO: Only Blue for Reef. This partnership’s creation includes building three coral reef nurseries and restoring a major fish habitat. Both will be accessible by beginner divers, providing a hands-on experience to understand the importance of protecting these beautiful natural environments. In addition, divers can also play a part in protecting the coral via a new “Adopt a Coral” program where they will attach their “adopted” fragment of coral from the nursery to an artificial reef, under the supervision of a marine biologist.
