TO create awareness of the importance of wetlands in a marine ecosystem, 29 volunteers from the Shangri-La's Fijian Resort and Spa planted about 100 mangrove seedlings earlier this week.

Led by resort marine manager Mereoni Mataika, the volunteers planted the seedlings and continued restoration work on mangroves surrounding Yanuca Island.

"As 2014 is the United Nations International Year of Family Farming, it is timely that the theme Wetlands and Agriculture has been chosen for World Wetlands Day," she said.

She added that about 2000 seedlings had been planted on the mangrove flats around Yanuca Island.
