International Coral Gardener Workshop @ Plantation Island Resort, Malolo Island Fiji – 13-20 May 2019

Our first coral gardening for climate change adaptation workshop!

Participants learnt about coral restoration ecology, coral nursery methods, coral predator removal, as well as how to select bleaching resistant corals for the reef restoration work. Together, we established a ‘super coral’ nursery, and introduced an A-frame method, a first for Fiji.

The week was interesting, exciting, and a whole lot of fun for everyone.

Kiribati Happy Chicken Workshop @ Teitei – 9-18 April 2019

A group of five community representatives flew in from the remote coral atolls of Aranuka, Marakei, and Tarawa, with the transport paid for by an Australian grant to our Kiribati partner, FSPK.

Participants were taught how to raise their own breeding flock of chickens and how to care for them, including housing, feeding and general rearing tips. They also learnt how to make virgin coconut oil (fermentation method) and soap, and how to engage their community in participatory decision making for better development outcomes.
