South Pacific Projects is a UK based non-profit marine conservation organisation committed to preserving biodiversity and promoting sustainable development in local communities.
Our marine conservation project provides training and employment opportunities to both local community members and staff from our project partners, thus demonstrating our commitment to capacity building.
South Pacific Projects has successfully initiated a research plan that empowers local communities to make more informed decisions regarding the the establishment of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) In April 2011 we successfully helped establish a new Marine Protected Area at Moon Reef, otherwise known as the site of an ancient village called Makalati. Our key staff will continue to support the Dawasamu Environment Movement, traditional resource owners of Moon Reef, to devise a Management Plan for the reef.
The SeaLife London Aquarium provides some of the donations to carry out conservation and research work in Fiji.
We believe that Pacific Island communities can benefit from access to the knowledge and support that empowers them to make informed decisions regarding sustainable management of their natural resources
To conduct our research on behalf of the communities that rely on thier marine resources for food security and income.
We consult the community about their needs and concerns at each step and we utilise the combination of local knowledge and expertise of our project partners to ensure the best chance of success with conservation initiatives.
