People need nature as it underpins our culture, food, economy, and wellbeing. Due to climate change, biodiversity loss, overfishing, and now the pandemic, there is more significant pressure on nature than ever before.
Fiji needs to protect our natural ecosystems to build resilient and self-reliant communities and economies.
Conservation International are working with communities to reduce human impact, develop sustainable livelihoods, and protect the environment. Together with our partners, we have created conservation legacies in the Sovi Basin and the Greater Delaikoro Protected Area. We now seek to significantly advance the formal network of marine and terrestrial protected areas and improve the sustainable management of Fiji’s most crucial forest and freshwater ecosystems. We’re also proudly working with traditional leaders in the Lau Seascape to build informed decision-making, expand protection and improve the management of this significant marine ecosystem.
