THE Uto ni Yalo's role in terms of conservation efforts in Fiji is to be able to demonstrate how it can sustainably offset the country's carbon footprint in terms of the nation's shipping services.

This was revealed by Uto ni Yalo Trust (UNYT) secretary, Dwain Qalovaki, at the inaugural open day for the Uto ni Yalo which was held at the National Sailing Centre at Suva Point yesterday.

Mr Qalovaki said the canoe was powered by wind and solar energy which gave them the opportunity to demonstrate that sustainable sea transport was viable, especially for the non-economically routes in the outer islands.
