THE Uto ni Yalo is ready to make another historical voyage.
And this time, she will venture to the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge for the International Union for Conservation of Nature's (IUCN) World Parks Congress 2014.
A memorandum of understanding was signed yesterday between Uto ni Yalo Trust president Ratu Manoa Rasigatale and IUCN, Protected Areas Coordinator Tony O'Keeffe at the IUCN Oceania office in Suva to set the course for the much anticipated congress.
Mr Rasigatale said the arrival of the traditional canoe into Sydney Harbour would be an exciting and visible way to portray some of the essential messages from the Pacific islands.
"We will peacefully and positively advocate for a healthy ocean and for the livelihoods of Pacific communities," he said.
