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

Sila Village has a population of about 150 and is located on the western side of Viti Levu, the larger of Fiji’s two main islands. The people of Sila Village are willing to  protect a 24,710-acre marine reserve for at least ten years. In return, Seacology will provide funds for construction of a community center.
