Conservation benefit: 332-acre rainforest preserve

Community benefit: Water storage tank and delivery system

Nasigasiga Village is 40 miles from the nearest town. The 228 villagers have below-average incomes by Fijian standards. The existing 6,500-gallon water tank constructed 15 years ago is now insufficient for the growing population. During the dry season there is no longer sufficient potable water, and the use of non-pure water has become a major health issue.

In exchange for the village setting aside 332 acres of primary forest to be protected in perpetuity, Seacology is providing a new water tank for the village.
