Fiji Shark Conservation Project turns one year old
“This is a great milestone for us, and we’re thrilled with what we have managed to achieve in just one year,” says Marine Conservation Director Ingrid Sprake. “The work and the research we do here assists global shark scientists in their studies, and ultimately informs government policies that lead to greater shark protection.”
Volunteers and staff in Fiji, locally known as Shark Warriors, celebrated the occasion by planting 365 mangrove saplings, one for each day that the project has been running. Cake, as well as local foods such as lovo and kava were shared as part of the celebrations.

“We are at the forefront of shark conservation in Fiji,” says Ingrid. “And we’re excited about the upcoming year, if this is what we can achieve in such a short space of time.”
