CHARITY INFO ...

The Vatuvara Foundation is committed to protect and revive oceans in Northern Lau through a network of marine protected areas and provide innovative solutions that promote awareness and empower local communities.
Their conservation efforts include education, awareness, monitoring, vulnerable species protection, poaching surveillance and restoration programmes.
Fiji faces complicated issues, where life is influenced by and dependent on the ocean. Profound changes are underway in the oceans, with coastal island communities at the greatest risk. Climate change in Fiji is already having a big impact on coastal ecosystems by stronger weather events, raising sea levels, ocean acidification and warming.
By creating safe havens for marine life, protected areas can restore habitats and indigenous species resulting in more resilient oceans to provide sustainable livelihoods for coastal communities and to mitigate against effects of climate change and natural disasters.
