As reported in The Edition, the successful completion of an Eco Park in NadellaGaafu Dhaalu Atoll was announced, through the support of the Bank of Maldives (BML) under the ‘Aharenge Bak’ Community Fund.  

The Eco Park project was managed by the Nadella Island Development Society (NIDS) at the island’s mangrove region, with the aim of increasing public awareness and encouraging tourists to experience the natural beauty of the island while preserving it for future generations. 

According to Corporate Maldives, the Eco Park is designed with a viewing platform and is decked out with seating areas, waste bins, and solar lighting to create a relaxing, clean, and environmentally sustainable area.  

The Nadella island council will oversee maintenance work, as well as manage the Eco Park.
