COMMISSIONER of Police Brigadier General Ioane Naivalurua has pledged support for shark conservation in Fiji.

He assured the Coral Reef Alliance ù which sponsored the Police Rugby League team last month ù that his officers would spread the message of shark conservation.

"The work of police officers now covers a wide range of issues, and one of importance is that of policing the environment," Brig-Gen Naivalurua said.

He advised the sponsors to use the police network in facilitating the conservation of sharks.

"You have my assurance that our officers will help spread the message of the importance of protecting sharks and our environment both on and off the field".

Police Rugby League team official Aporosa Lutunauga said the team embraced the partnership with Coral Reef Alliance and they would support their effort in shark conservation.

He added this was also part of their corporate responsibility in giving back to the community and our environment.

The Fiji Police Rugby League team is the holder of the World Police Rugby League Cup and is scheduled to defend the title next year.
