Fiji expedition begins

Follow the progress of the Joint Aquarium Fiji Expedition on the Global Explorers Blog at http://explorers.neaq.org/2012/03/2012-joint-aquarium-fiji-expedition.html. Dr Stacy Jupiter, Director of WCS Fiji, is on board to collect data on the health of the coral reefs in Fiji’s waters, as well as to visit local conservation initiatives in the area – such as a farm for giant clams on the island of Makogai.

 

Cruising the reefs of Solevu

Here is a video from Rebecca Weeks, Postdoctoral Research Fellow at WCS Fiji, showing our boat cruising the reefs of Solevu District, Fiji, on the way to a dive at our survey site. At the site we will go on to collect data that we can use to determine reef resilience.
