Pullman Phuket Panwa Beach Resort is proud to announce the opening of its new Shark Tank nursery in partnership with Oceans for All Foundation (OFA) to help hatch Bamboo shark eggs in an aquarium at the lobby of the resort.
Starting December 1, 2022, Pullman Phuket Panwa’s guests and Phuket residents can visit the resort to discover and learn more about Bamboo Sharks right in the lobby of the property.
The idea was initiated last month when OFA decided to collaborate with Pullman Phuket Panwa to help preserve the balance of Panwa’s ecosystem by hatching Bamboo Shark eggs in a protected environment. The new nursery gives the sharks a size advantage that helps maintain their survival ratio after being released back into the ocean when they turn six months old.
Mr. Vincent DELSOL – General Manager of Pullman Phuket Panwa Beach Resort, said, “I believe this new initiative will spark interest amongst our guests and visitors to learn more about these fascinating creatures and their role in preserving a perfect ecosystem balance.”
The bamboo shark became an endangered species a few years ago due to its popularity with fish collectors and exotic food enthusiasts. Pollution and overfishing are also significant threats to their survival.
