A small organisation making a big contribution to conservation in Fiji

Welcome to the MES Fiji website! We are an active environment society passionately committed to protecting the stunning marine and terrestrial environment of the Mamanuca Islands in Fiji. The society was formed in 2001 after concerns for the Mamanuca Island environment were raised by local resorts, tour operators and Coral Cay Conservation. Because of the foresight of our founding members, today we are a strong, proactive organisation  – proud guardians of our stunning natural environment.
