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

  • creates incentives for sustainable tourism.

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

The Best Shark Dive in the World!
  • No-Cage Shark Diving?
    Nice pic! Source. For those of you who may have read this. Jimmy cannot talk for obvious reasons. But I've talked to him, and what I can say is that like I speculated then, it was a diving accident - not good, but nothing to do with Shark strikes let alone cageless diving. Period. More reflections by Martin here.
  • Barefoot Skiing behind Airplane!
    Source. Too busy for posting substantive stuff. But this is awesome - enjoy!
  • The Revenge of the Sea Kitten!
    From PETA's idiotic Sea Kitten Stories. Bitter and insane, she spends her day plotting revenge against the Land Kittens who live such happy lives in comfortable homes, free from the terror of being eaten. Free no more - behold the terror! Story here.
