Children learn about sharks

MAKING use of their final days of holiday at home, children from Saunaka Village in Nadi put their spare time to good use by learning more about shark conservation.

Organised by Projects Abroad Fiji, the schoolchildren were part of a holiday school workshop headed by volunteers from Australia.

Projects Abroad Fiji information co-ordinator Tagimoucia Koroivuki said the children had been part of the program since December last year.

"During this week's school holiday the children learnt about the importance of the existence of sharks in our marine life," she said.

"Our volunteers from Australia organised a program to involve the children in fun-learning about sharks, learning the features of a shark and the different types of species of shark."

Ms Koroivuki said the young participants gained a new perspective on sharks following the workshop.

"The children were filled with excitement learning more about sharks as it changed their perception about sharks being human predators.

"It was a great way for them to end the week with the theme 'Sharks are not our enemy, they are our Friends'."
