Conservation benefit: Construction of mooring buoys
The ocean surrounding Vava’u is one of the premier yachting areas in the entire South Pacific. Constant dropping of anchors, however, is taking its toll on the area’s coral reefs. This grant has enabled volunteers to construct permanent mooring buoys, eliminating the need for boats to drop anchors on the reef.
