IN its bid to promote a clean and safe environment, preserve marine life and to re-generate eco-system, the 2013 Leadership Fiji team yesterday dedicated the day to planting 3000 mangrove seedlings along the Nasese foreshore.

Team 2013 rep Isoa Wainiqolo said alumni members carried out phase 2 of their mangrove planting project which started last year.

He said the first phase also featured the group planting 3000 seedlings in September last year, which was described as a success.

"Mangrove planting is part of the environmental factor of Leadership Fiji's range of projects, which aims to assist in the preservation of our marine life, by re-generating a vital and rich eco-system," Mr Wainiqolo said.

The area is situated opposite the Stella Maris Primary School along Queen Elizabeth Dr in Nasese.
