Professor Joeli Veitayaki visits Niubasaga

Joeli Veitayaki is Associate Professor and Head of the Division of Marine Studies, University of South Pacific. He visited us in Niubasaga and explained, from his perspective, the threats to and solutions for the local environment. The talk further inspired the village, and Professor Veitayaki was able to answer questions to issues previously only addressed in English.

The group looked at how the village can best use and protect its resources – how the mangroves can protect the shoreline, how the freshwater source can be improved, where to place the pig pens, and which fishing methods to use.
