To help protect this endangered species, the facility has placed sea turtle hatching cages on its beach lawn where the eggs are monitored daily until they hatch.


One of the tools that the Serena Beach Resort & Spa uses to promote marine conservation is the human-size chessboard found near the beach within the premises. The chess that is themed around Marine Life Vs Life Cycle of a Butterfly is based on conservation projects that the property is running, that is butterfly conservation beside the turtle conservation highlighted above. The chess pieces have been made by Ocean Sole Foundation out of recycled flipflops that are found disposed on the beaches and other water sources such as rivers and lakes. It is estimated that about 2,512 flipflops were repurposed to make the chessboard. In this way, the property is creating awareness about the impact of marine debris on the environment and the importance of conserving marine life.
