MUA — Guided by Nature, the journey of traditional Pacific voyaging canoes to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) World Parks Congress in Sydney, Australia for this year was officially announced to the voyaging societies in the Pacific in Suva last night.

During the announcement of the voyage three voyaging societies, the Cook Islands Voyaging Society, the Samoan Voyaging Society and the Te Toki Voyaging Trust (New Zealand) signed a memorandum of understanding with the IUCN.

IUCN regional director Taholo Kami said the voyaging societies, when formed in the past six years had inspired and challenged many in the Pacific especially on issues of voyaging and connecting to nature and the ocean.
