Duration: from 1 week to 20 weeks
Countries: Fiji
The aim of this Fiji Reef Conservation Project is to better understand the marine resources of the island of Beqa and to provide teaching and training to local communities.
Summary

Fiji Volunteer & Diving

To achieve this mission, we conduct scientific baseline data surveys of reef areas, mapping the sea grass beds and mangrove fringes of the region. Once a long term data set is obtained, patterns of resource use can be identified and work with local communities can begin to build awareness of the value and vulnerability of their marine environment. We also aim to locate turtle nesting beaches on Beqa and help to create seasonally protected areas.

The Fijian archipelago lies scattered lazily in the achingly blue waters of the Pacific Ocean, bathed in the radiant antipodean sunlight. Its towns and villages are veritable melting pots of cultural influences.

Fiji's irresistible shores are fringed with picture-perfect palm trees, and the azure waters that surround the islands are inhabited by an astonishing array of marine creatures; over 1,200 species of fish including clownfish, triggerfish, blue tangs, 12 species of whales, dolphins, anemones, soft coral and much more.

Enjoy fragrant sun drenched days and exotic nights of delectable food cooked in a traditional underground oven. Fiji will enchant you with its infectious, chilled out “Fiji time” lifestyle, its heavenly beaches and surrounding mountains of rainforest– the perfect paradise location for your adventure!
