Sea Life supports the Fiji Shark Sanctuary

South Pacific Projects (SPP) and The Sea Life London Aquarium have lent their support to the Fiji Shark Sanctuary campaign that aims to stop the trade in shark products and hopefully protect sharks from the increasing threat of shark-finning in Fijian waters. Please visit the website and add your name to the pledge

The Sea Life London Aquarium has added an incredible new shark reef encounter and is committed to supporting shark conservation projects around the world. In collaboration with SPP, Sea Life has donated funds to help provide shark awareness workshops in schools and local communities in Fiji. We are partnering Global Vision International and the Blue Lagoon Beach Resort on this initiative and SPPs spokesperson is Alisi Rabukawaqa, current Miss Fiji and reigning Miss South Pacific.

Alisi is a Postgraduate student at The University of the South Pacific and her current studies in Conservation Biology are being funded by Sea Life and SPP. She understands the importance of raising awareness about shark conservation in schools so that the youngsters can re-connect with one of their cultural icons. One of the most famous traditional beliefs about sharks in Fiji is the story of the Shark-God, Dakuwaqa

We will be posting updates aboutour  progress as Alisi travels to the Yasawa Islands to represent SPP and Sea Life in this new collaboration with GVI and the local community.
