THE Australia New Zealand Banking Group (ANZ) Fiji has further boosted the work of the Mamanuca Environment Society (MES) by giving the group a cheque for more than $25,500.
The $25.555.55 cheque was presented by ANZ senior relationship manager west Linda Hanfakaga and will be used to fund the different conservation programs run by MES.
Ms Hanfakaga said ANZ would continue to support MES in their efforts to conserve the marine environment in the Mamanucas.
She said they were proud to have been one of the first organisations to be involved with MES and their conservation efforts since 2001.
MES project manager Betani Salusalu acknowledged the ANZ Bank for its continued support.
"ANZ has been with us from day one. They were there from the time when we started in 2001. ANZ was the first organisation to sponsor us and they were the first ones to appreciate our work as a marine conservation group," he said.
"The money will be part of the funding that is distributed to all the projects that MES has been responsible for, not only for turtle (conservation) education and awareness but also for coral replanting, reef restoration, community and school engaged programs," Mr Salusalu said.
