Conservation in the islands

Maciu Malo

THE Mamanuca Environment Society is working on a program to engage local communities to conserve the Mamanuca Group of Islands.

Project manager Marica Vakacola said the vision was to promote awareness at community level since the program was implemented by volunteers.

And in a move to ensure participation of landowners, the society teamed up with Ahura Resorts staff members for a clean-up campaign at Yaro Village early this week.

"Community engagement is a must for conservation," Ms Vakacola said.
