In 2014, South Pacific Projects will be offering a new type of ecotourism experience to resourceful and inquisitive travellers. The emphasis will be on cultural immersion, allowing you a glimpse of life as a Pacific Islander. In addition, professional training will be provided in order that you may contribute to a sustainable conservation project during your trip. We believe that small is better and to that end we will only be offering eight places on each of our trips. Details of our new ecotourism holidays will be released in September.
South Pacific Projects has carried out conservation and educational work in Fiji for four years and collaborates with the SEA LIFE London Aquarium and Whale & Dolphin Conservation to fund and support Marine Protected Areas and cetacean research projects in Fiji.
Our proudest achievement was to assist the community of Dawasamu to establish a new Marine Protected Area (MPA) that will help afford long-term protection to Fiji’s only resident pod of Spinner dolphins (Stenella longirostris). Our efforts are specifically targeted to assist communities to set up community managed Marine Protected Areas, proven globally to protect biodiversity and provide a more sustainable fishery. We¬† work closely with the Department of Fisheries, FLMMA and the University of the South Pacific to achieve our goals.
