Community benefit: Community center maintenance and repair

Date Approved: 07.2004

Ocean

This project protects ocean ecosystems, making coastal communities more economically and physically secure in the face of climate change.

Nacamaki villagers are renowned for their traditional gift of turtle calling; by chanting, they entice sea turtles to swim to the shore. Nacamaki has a community center which is the largest on Koro Island. The 22-year old center is deteriorating and is in need of repair and maintenance.

The village is willing to establish a 1,000-acre no-take marine reserve for a minimum of 10 years. In exchange, Seacology will fund the repair and maintenance of their community center.
