Since its earliest days, Hayman has been linked to scientific exploration of the area’s marine environment. The preservation of the fragile ecosystem and the conservation of terrestrial species underpins many of Hayman’s operational and corporate philosophies.
Notably, Hayman has played an integral part in the success of a breeding program involving the endangered Proserpine Rock Wallaby, a species now thriving on the island.
Hayman has also taken the lead by supporting research efforts aimed at protecting the fragile coral ecosystem. Hayman guests are encouraged to donate a nominal amount for each night of their stay to the ZooX Fund. An initiative of the Great Barrier Reef Foundation, ZooX is dedicated to raising funds for reef research and helping preserve the Great Barrier Reef for generations to come.
Furthermore, operating within a marine protected area means that the resort has to comply with conditions of permitting schemes, which are administered by the Environmental Protection Agency and the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority. The island maintains close working relationships with these organisations which share responsibility for the area’s care.
In addition, the resort operates according to internationally accepted standards of Quality, Safety and Environmental Management Systems (ISO 9001, 1800 and 14001)
Hayman also implements educational initiatives that further reduce environmental impacts, nature trails and interpretative walks inform guests of the island’s biological history.
Hayman participates in The Leading Hotels of the World’s carbon neutral program. Please click the button below for further information.
