Conservation and Environment in Fiji: Monthly Updates
Monthly Updates from 2014
2014. Wow what a year! The Project has achieved so much and has come so far in our 1st year, not only for the Sharks but the community too! A huge thank you goes out to all Staff and Volunteers for your amazing contribution!
We are fast approaching our one year anniversary and what a year it has been. Having just been recognized as Projects Abroads’ most successful Conservation Project, the huge amount of work and dedication of everybody who has been involved has been recognized.
Wow! What an amazing eight months it has been. If someone had told me that this project would have been so successful i would not have believed it! But here we are already been recognised as the "Best Shark Conservation project in the world" WWF.
These last two months have seen a huge shift from us being a brand new project, still adapting and finding its feet, to what we have been told is the best and most well rounded Shark Conservation Project in world.
March and April heralded another leap forward in the Fiji Shark Conservation's success. As this new project continues to get tweaked and improved, we have added value to the volunteers' experience by concentrating on volunteer education and utilising their individual skill sets to carry out tasks and activities.
The Projects Abroad Fiji Shark Conservation Project officially opened its doors on 5th January 2014. Starting with a full complement of 21 volunteers, we got off to a strong start as we began introducing our pilot research studies and conservation initiatives.
