Environmental Policy

The Mamanuca Environment Society is committed to the promotion of awareness of the need to protect the marine and terrestrial resources of the Mamanuca Region and to assist, through partnerships with local communities, tourism operators, government and non–government organizations, in the environmentally sustainable development of these resources for the benefit of present and future generations.

It is the Society’s mission to better inform all stakeholders; be they MES members or surrounding communities, of the environmental issues that face our region and country as a whole. MES highlights through stakeholder communication the relevant steps and strategies needed to ensure that our mission is achieved – sustainable tourism and community livelihood through environmental awareness and protection.
