Sutera Harbour Resort to observe Earth Hour for third time in a row

KOTA KINABALU: For the past two consecutive years, Sutera Harbour Resort had joined the rest of the world in observing Earth Hour which is held on the last Saturday of March every year.

This year Sutera Harbour Resort is most honoured and delighted to partner with Kota Kinabalu City Hall, Sabah Environmental Action Centre and World Wildlife Fund to launch Earth Hour, the world largest campaign for the planet on Saturday, March 31 at 8.30pm in the covered tennis court at the Sutera Harbour Marina, Golf and Country Club.

Together with 135 countries and territories across every continent, Sutera Harbour Resort has pledged to support this environmental sustainable action by switching off non-essential lights around The Magellan Sutera Resort, The Pacific Sutera Hotel and Sutera Harbour Marina, Golf & Country Club as well as in the other properties of Sutera Sanctuary Lodges.

According to the Magellan Sutera Resort general manager and representative for Sutera Harbour Resort, Ravindran Kathiravelu, the highlight of this year launch for the Earth Hour will be focused on the global theme uniting People To Protect The Planet?

In keeping with the theme, 480 candles will be lighted up on the huge Earth Hour logo (60+) which will be put up at the venue, he said at a press conference yesterday.

Ravi said that the programme would start off at 6pm and Sutera Harbour Resort had organized several activities leading to the launch of Earth Hour.

Some of the activities include a Food & Games Fun Fair, Most Creative Costume Contest for children from five to 12 years old and Earth Hour Photography Competition. The Most Creative Contest will be judged on originality based on the theme Uniting People to Protect The Planet, he disclosed.

Participants who join the Earth Hour Photography competition must capture images during the lights off between 8.30pm and 9.30pm at the tennis court, he said, adding that all photos submitted to the resort will be uploaded in Sutera Harbour Resort Fan Page in Facebook and members of the public are invited to log in and vote for their favourite photo.
