Coconut Lagoon engages in different projects and initiatives to protect the animals and the various species all around the resort. In the following you will find a selection of projects on how the Coconut Lagoon Resort protects the local fauna.
Coconut Lagoon provides the perfect living space for various animal species. The resort feels responsible for the animals who live in the natural environment of Spice Village, and therefore protect them and their natural habitat. Coconut Lagoon is a bird friendly place.
Many birds are very common in the resort’s garden. Coconut Lagoon has fixed a lot of nest-boxes on the branches of trees to provide nesting facilities for hole nesting birds like Magpie Robin, Common Myna etc. Wetland birds are very active in the canals and the paddy-fields of the Coconut Lagoon.
The premises of Coconut Lagoon is a very wild-life friendly place. Many wild creatures like Python, Monitor Lizard, Toddy Cat, Common Palm Civet and Smooth coated Otter live in this area. The presence of these wild animals, sometimes creates small Human-wildlife conflicts.
They collect eggs of the turtles and rear them in protected conditions. Otherwise eggs will be destroyed by bandicoot rats. The hatched baby turtles are released by the guests, which gives them a heart-touching experience from mother nature.
A Fish sanctuary has been developed at Coconut Lagoon to protect the local fish fauna. More than 30 species of fishes are recorded in the sanctuary. Water bodies in and around Coconut Lagoon are a paradise for dragonflies and damselflies.
50 species of dragonflies and damselflies are recorded in the gardens. These magnificent insects play an important role in controlling mosquitoes. Watching dragonflies and damselflies is one of our most loved nature related activities. No other hotel has introduced this activity as a guest experience.
“Coconut Lagoon itself a place for nature education. Butterfly-garden, Fish-sanctuary, Pollution control measures and rich bio-diversity using many regional educational institutions for creating awareness and knowledge about nature conservation.”
