Summary

Fiji Shark Conservation

The Fijian archipelago lies scattered lazily in the 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 shores are fringed with picture-perfect palm trees, and the azure waters that surround the islands are inhabited by an array of marine creatures; over 1,200 species of fish including clownfish, triggerfish, blue tangs, 10 species of shark, 12 species of whales, dolphins, turtles, anemones, soft coral and much more.

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

This project is ideal for anyone with an interest in these endangered and misunderstood animals. Join us on our Fiji Shark Project, helping to determine the diversity and behaviour of these iconic, yet endangered species. Work with us on assessing the factors that are putting these species under threat, from overfishing, to pollution and habitat destruction. Working alongside internationally renowned experts in shark conservation and marine biology, help us assess the status and health of reef sharks in Fiji . The aim of this project is to increase understanding of their population dynamics and behaviour, both locally and internationally, to strengthen local and international protections for these species and to raise awareness among the local community regarding the importance of sharks.
