Celebrating International Women in Science – Captain Cook Cruises’ Fiji Reef sustainability efforts continue.

Fiji Reef Sustainability Efforts Continue

The world renowned coral reefs’ of Fiji are natural wonders that can be experienced and explored by guests of Captain Cook Cruises. The sustainability and health of these unique reefs’ is a key focus of the company team of predominantly female Marine Biologists who have recently celebrated International Women in Science Day on February 11th.

These dedicated Biologists lead a range of sustainability initiatives including – the Captain Cook Cruises Coral Rejuvenation Program, on the 500acre coral reef at beautiful Tivua Island. A central element of this commitment is the “buy a coral – build a reef” project which was launched in July last year to promote the seeding and growth of coral reef surrounding Tivua.  In addition to the company’s extensive efforts, all guests can actively participate by buying a coral frag and planting it in the reef.

Work by the Biologists has continued throughout the past year and Tivua Island and its coral reef has significantly benefited from the extensive work by Captain Cook’s team. Coral planting and monitoring and rejuvenation of on land plant life, have been priorities.

Captain Cook Cruises is a leader in sustainable tourism and reef education in Fiji more broadly, with their team providing education to guests both on Tivua Island as well as when cruising on small ship Reef Endeavour through water activities and lectures.

In addition to the Reef Rejuvenation program the company also has an Ocean Ambassador initiative. Fiji is well known for its pristine clear waters and beaches and the Ocean Ambassador program, targets any ocean borne debris it finds from beaches around Fiji during the Reef Endeavour itineraries that stretch as far as Sawa-i-lau & Kia island in the north and the outer reaches of the Lau group visiting more than 90 of Fiji’s 330 islands. Any debris found is sorted, weighed, recorded and recycled.

The continuing success of Captain Cook’s sustainability programs throughout Fiji is a direct result of the dedication of the company’s local Marine Biologists, Ocean Ambassador team and crew.  They look forward to welcoming guests back to experience unique pristine Fiji.
