PHUKET, THAILAND – 26 September 2017 – In celebration of World Tourism Day on 27th September 2017, JW Marriott Phuket Resort and Spa together with the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and Marriott Thailand Business Council will host a showcase of their award winning Sustainable Tourism Practices, “Best CSR – Social Impact Partnership” at the 2017 Rockefeller Social Impact Awards, curated by The Resource Alliance.

The highlight of the event, to be held at the JW Marriott Phuket Resort and Spa in Mai Khao sub-district, will be an awareness-raising event on sustainable seafood , the special black crab dish that will be served for dinner on World Tourism Day itself. The crabs used in this specially-prepared dish are sustainably sourced from the Pu Dam community as they are wild caught from Klong Au Ta Pao mangrove forest, located 5km from JW Marriott Phuket Resort and Spa. The crabs – only those bigger than 150 grams – are caught using low impact gear and boats without engines.

Marriott has been purchasing black crabs and other sustainable seafood from the Pu Dam community since 2014.
“We take great care and effort when it comes to where our fish and seafood is sourced from, and we always choose sustainable options. We believe in doing our bit for the environment, and also want to support and improve the livelihoods of coastal-resources dependent communities,” said Chef Dietmar Spitzer, Executive Chef for JW Marriott Phuket Resort and Spa.

The World Tourism Day event will also include an “Ancient Wild” black crab cooking class, where guests will learn how to make authentic Phuket dishes with Tanasub Trisub AKA Chef Tham, a local chef, alongside handicraft activities at the Mai Khao Women’s Community Group Bracelet project.

The event will also feature other unique sustainable tourism initiatives such as the Mai Khao Marine Turtle Foundation Shelter and Education Center, a local non-governmental organization and IUCN Member organization. There will also be a premiere screening of “Black Crab Community”, a short documentary film produced and directed by social impact film director Mr. Alan Compton.

Phuket Governor Noraphat Plodthong, directors from Tourism Authority of Thailand, local media, representativesfrom IUCN and the Pu Dam community will be at the resort to celebrate the special day.

The importance of sustainable seafood is picking up real momentum as the world’s fisheries are in great danger of collapsing due to overfishing. Increasing demand for seafood and advances in technology have led to overfishing practices, causing species to become endangered, as well as intensive and poorly regulated aquaculture, which directly impacts nearby ecosystems. Purchasing and consuming sustainable seafood is a fundamental step in protecting our oceans and ensuring that future generations can still rely on fisheries in the future.

IUCN and Marriott have been in partnership since 2013, and have worked together to protect the environment and support Thailand’s local communities through mangrove restoration, the use of sustainable seafood sources and local procurement practices in Bangkok, Phuket, Koh Samui and Rayong. To date, the partnership has restored over 16 hectares of mangrove forests, purchased over 5.5 million Baht worth of sustainable seafood and handicraft from local communities and contributed to improving the livelihoods of over 70 families.  Over 9 million Baht has also been raised through the dollars for deeds programme to support conservation activities implemented by IUCN.

The partnership contributes to achieving several Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), including SDG 11 on sustainable cities and communities, SDG 12 on sustainable consumption and production, SDG Goal 14 on conservation and sustainable use of oceans, seas and marine resources, and SDG Goal 17 on global partnership for sustainable development.

“In order for sustainable development to work, all sectors of society need to work together. This partnership truly embodies just that as we have the private sector – represented by international hotel chain Marriott, the local communities – represented by the Pu Dam community and the public sector – represented by IUCN, working together towards a common goal of protecting our oceans,” said Petch Manopawitr, Thailand Programme Coordinator and Deputy, Indo-Burma Group, IUCN.

The Pu Dam community, where black crabs are sourced for JW Marriott Phuket Resort and Spa restaurants, was previously supported by Mangroves for the Future (MFF), a regional grant-making facility spanning 11 countries across Asia and the Indian Ocean. With MFF’s support, capacity-building programmes on community waste management and coastal resource management were launched and mangrove areas were restored as part of a community reforestation initiative.

Fishing has been a livelihood that has been passed on for generations. Fishers live close to the shore and anchor their boats in canals. Mangrove forests are a natural shelter to protect boats and properties from storms as well as produce food.

The livelihood of the mud crab village relies heavily on the harvest of mud crabs. Mud crabs are the most mangrove-dependent of sourced seafood. Small-scale fishermen catch mud crabs in mangrove estuaries. This sweet-meat crustacean is a highly valuable resource for local economies. The mud crab spends its whole life cycle in and around mangrove forests.

A dish of stir-fried Black Crab with yellow curry is carefully cooked before being served to hotel guests. To ensuring the safety, quality and freshness of seafood products, Marriott Chefs source raw ingredients daily from local small-scale artisan fishers. This promotes sustainable and low impact fisheries, and reduces by-catch species and ecological footprints. To support a healthy ocean, eating species lower down the food chain (crabs, squid, oyster, mackerel, sardines, mussels) which are managed and caught responsibly are encouraged.

The fact that in the fishing culture, men work at sea while most women stay at home and manage the household and take care of children which means men contribute significantly to family’s income. To provide additional income, IUCN and Marriott work together to develop and identify opportunities for sourcing of sustainable souvenirs and gifts from local communities.

Bangkok, 30 August 2017- ONYX Hospitality Group Foundation, in collaboration with WWF-Thailand, is taking part in an environmental educational Eco-Schools Programme at Wannawit School in Bangkok. The opening ceremony started with the presenting of Eco-Schools Armbands to the student committee to symbolise their commitment to preserving and maintaining a sustainable school environment. To achieve the goal, WWF-Thailand will share their knowledge about sustainable environmental management to the student committee while ONYX Hospitality Group Foundation will provide financial support via its ‘Baht for a Better Life’ CSR programme.

The Eco-Schools Programme is a fundamental initiative which encourages young people to engage with their environment through actions to preserve and protect the ecosystem. The actions will start in the classroom, expands towards the whole school and eventually foster change in the community at large. This programme is intended to provide the youth with the achievement of being able to influence the environmental management policies of their schools, and ultimately steer them towards certification and the prestige which comes with being awarded a Green Flag. The Eco-Schools programme is an ideal way for schools to embark on a meaningful path towards improving the environment in both the school and the local community while at the same time having a life-long positive impact on the lives of young people, their families, school staff and local authorities.

In the Eco-Schools programme, students and adults will learn about environmental management through hands-on practice in schools by following 7 steps:

1) Set up of an environmental committee
2) Review of a relevant environmental situation
3) Creation of an action plan
4) Monitoring and evaluation of activities
5) Integrating the plan into the school curriculum
6) Informing and Involving the students and community
7) Creating an Eco-Code
After the opening ceremony, ONYX Hospitality Group volunteers conducted a fun and insightful learning activity with Wannawit students on the topic of waste management that is one of the themes of the ‘Eco-Schools Programme’.

Following this initial collaboration, ONYX Hospitality Group Foundation and WWF-Thailand look forward to expanding the Eco-Schools Programme to other schools in other locations where Amari properties are located, with the intention of expanding on the company’s commitment towards promoting and supporting the environmental preservation in the communities where the company is part of.
