CORALThe Coral Reef Alliance (CORAL) is a member-supported nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting coral reefs around the world for current and future generations.

Progress in Fiji

Scattered across roughly 1.3 million square kilometers of the South Pacific, the Fijian Archipelago encompasses one of the most extensive coral reef systems in the world. The rich biodiversity of marine life in this area is one of the most important reasons that CORAL chose to focus our project work in the Fijian communities of Namena and Waitabu. CORAL has provided training for local tourism business, helping community members improve their business practices, reduce anchor damage to the reef, and educate visitors about environmentally responsible tourism.

By demonstrating how the development of well-managed marine protected areas can benefit the overall community, CORAL facilitated the establishment of no-take marine reserves that are improving the health and resiliency of the reefs.

Along with our local partners, CORAL is making real progress toward the creation of sustainable coral reefs and communities in Fiji.CORAL

  • Baiting Lions?
    Source. Have you seen this? And if so, could anybody please tell me what it means? Because it is being praised, and liked, and shared around, and commented upon like it was some ultimate piece of wisdom - whereas to me, it looks like nothing but gibberish, and moronic to boot? Don't know what I'm talking about? Is this against Shark baiting? If so, NOBODY baits Sharks to make
  • Western Australia - Imminent Threat Policy!
    Source. Oh for fuck's sake. Read this. Seriously, how can a Shark be a threat if you know where it is! But instead of doing the sensible thing = telling the people to stay away from that beach til the GWS moves on, they are using the pings from the tags to go and kill it.  This idiotic policy is saving no-one but instead, it will only have one possible outcome: they will eventually end
