World-leading hotel group, Jumeirah, is raising awareness for Turtle Conservation with a unique range of 3D printed turtle structures, being installed throughout Dubai.

Since its inception in 2004, the Dubai Turtle Rehabilitation Project has rescued and recovered an incredible 1,600 turtles, releasing them back into their natural habitat. Renowned artist, Idriss B, has a penchant for polygonic art – with several installations throughout Dubai, and beyond. His innovative thinking has extended to this project also, which was inaugurated by Project Ambassador, Sheikh Fahim bin Sultan bin Khalid Al Qasimi.

Jumeirah, is raising awareness for Turtle Conservation with a unique range of 3D printed turtle structures, being installed throughout Dubai. Produced by Proto21 3D printing farm, the polygonal, 3D printed turtles are made from Filamentive recycled material – reducing the environmental impact of this project, whilst also further highlighting the importance of environmental protection. These structures are being installed throughout Dubai, including one right by one of the city’s most striking landmarks, the Burj Al Arab Hotel.

“It is always exciting to see our sustainable materials selected for high-visibility projects; given our own strong focus on sustainability, it is truly rewarding to be a small part of an impactful project that highlights marine conservation,” said Ravi Toor, Founder & Managing Director of Filamentive. We commend Jumeirah Group for their environmental efforts, thank our valued partners Proto21 for their sustainable 3D printing production, and also applaud Idriss B for his creativity in raising awareness for this all-important cause”

To further highlight the importance of marine conservation, Turtle Tea has been launched by Jumeirah Group, which will feature this purpose-led culinary offering at the Al Naseem’s Al Mandhar Lounge. A multi-sensory journey, Turtle Tea consists of polygonal, 3D-printed sculptures, which will be placed around the hotel. With every Turtle Tea experience, a contribution will be made to the Dubai Turtle Rehabilitation Project.
