Keep it clean

A SHARK conservation project by Nadi-based Projects Abroad Fiji includes an awareness campaign in coastal villages on Viti Levu.

The group, which introduced a holiday shark education workshop for children in Nadi, has now expanded to other regions.

The campaign was introduced in Galoa Village, Navua where villagers were educated on the importance of keeping their environment clean for themselves and for marine life.

Project co-ordinator Ronetava Ronaivakulua said a recycling project helped the villagers and the conservation of the marine ecosystem.

"The recycling project is to also help Projects Abroad Fiji nurture mangroves," Mr Ronaivakulua said in a statement.

"So, with the plastic bags that we buy from the villagers, we plant mangrove propagules in the plastic bags and nurse them until they are grown and then take it back to replant them at the village."
