Mangroves for Fiji - One Hundred Thousand!


Mangroves for Fiji continues to grow - literally!

We've just inspected and paid for the carbon credits of another three hectares, bringing the total up to 10, or 100,000 Mangrove trees.

Our Sivo handing over the first installment of FJD 500 - another 500 will be paid in six months

And we hear about more sites that have been completed plus several others that are being worked on!

Anania Waqalevu will use the money to pay the school fees for his children

Still a ways to go before we're completely carbon neutral - but getting there!

I am repeating myself, but this project truly is the right way forward. Shark research is nice, but habitat protection, conservation and restoration is even better - very well done!

Thanks!

But... Shark research is nice! :)

When you get enough mangroves set up you can sell the whole thing to a shrimp farmer...oh wait, that's bad;)

Nicely done sir, we would do the same here but we're not in Mangrove territory.
