Campaign support

THE 4FJ campaign has applauded the Methodist Church in Fiji and Rotuma for joining its campaign to stop the catching and eating of kawakawa and donu during the June to September breeding season.

They said the church was demonstrating strong leadership on an issue critical to the health and well-being of the people of Fiji.

Scott Radway, the executive director of SeaWeb Asia Pacific, who designed and co-ordinated the 4FJ campaign, said the church's support was an important milestone for the 4FJ movement.

"We have said from the start of this campaign that if we got the message out, people would get behind 4FJ.

"Our challenge has always been getting the message out," Mr Radway said.

"Now, in partnership with the largest religious institution in the country, we are set to reach so many more people on this critical issue."

He said the church had taken a tremendous step in ensuring that the kawakawa and donu remained to support the communities that rely on them.
