Vava’u Island

September 1999

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.

Project Updates
November 2003
The two moorings have been constructed and installed.
