Malolo Island Resort is keeping busy with its environment activities. Recent projects include coral restoration like coral planting, and restocking their house reefs with the reef builders – giant clams. The Resort is also preparing to kick-start its reef-check activities with the assistance of MES staff.
A success story worth mentioning is the completion of the Resort’s bush track known as Jonahs Look out track. The track begins from the edge of the resort and leads up an approximate distance of 150 meters lined with many traditionally significant plants and trees. Each type of plant/ tree has its own explanatory note beside it outlining its scientific name and its native name with traditional uses. Information provided is very useful and interesting and something that all tourists and visitors can take back home with them.
From the top of Jonah’s Look-out Track is breath-taking scenery of the neighboring islands and Resorts surrounded by crystal clear waters. You could almost see the distinct outline of patch reefs under the sea decorated with colourful corals teamed with fish going about their daily routine.
In addition to the aforementioned activities, Malolo Island Resort with its sister Resort – Likuliku Island Resort, will also be taking part in the upcoming Fiji Great Butterflyfish Count. This activity is organized by Resort Support to commemorate the 2008 International Year of the Reef, and supported by the Fiji Government, Ministry of Fisheries, Reef Check Fiji, Global Coral Reef Monitoring Network, Conservation International, and Ocean.
