Beach Resource Center @ Pereybere
Come and visit our Beach Resource Centre in Pereybere
Since 2007, Reef Conservation has been operating a Beach Resource Centre on the public beach of Pereybere. The Center was set up in collaboration with the Mauritian Scuba Diving Association and the Beach Authority and with principal sponsor the GEF Small Grants Programme of the UNDP.
Hands-on learning and activities
Our resource persons will guide you through the center or will take you out on a guided snorkel trip?? of the lagoon of Pereybere. Also keep an eye out for our themed exhibits such as forests, cetaceans or on other marine life!
Working with the community
The Beach Resource Centre seeks to build environmentally friendly culture on and around public beaches while providing information about broader marine environmental issues. Local boat operators provide glass bottom trips to school children and youth and participate in marine conservation training sessions.
The centre serves as a focal point for Club Mer the children and youth of Mauritius to learn about first aid at sea and marine environmental conservation.
