Participants to mark marine protected area

By FELIX CHAUDHARY
Friday, May 30, 2014

Update: 2:30PM PARTICIPANTS attending a 12-day workshop in Sigatoka, will end the training session with the symbolic marking of a marine protected area at a Coral Coast area where live coral is being harvested.

The 10 participants from Vatukarasa Village and Navoto Settlement will conduct the activity after completion of the workshop facilitated by Tessa Miller from Namana Fiji and Jaine Rubine, a craft specialist brought in by the Market Development Fund from Australia.

"The symbolic marking of the tabu area will be followed by a small act of ocean regeneration where we will replant broken coral and live rock damaged from harvest activity."

Namana Fiji was established by Mrs Miller and her husband, Brad, in 2003 to provide tourists with authentic Fiji made art and craft.

It has outlets in the Outrigger on the Lagoon Resort and Spa and Shangri La's Fijian Resort and Spa.
