Monitoring the Naitauba Reef is among the most important objectives of our initiative, providing us with valuable data to find out what can be done to support the reef and identify potential dangers to the reef.
We are grateful that the Onset Corporation, which is a leading manufacturer of state-of-the-art data logging equipment, will help our initiative in getting our monitoring program started. Onset offered to provide three data loggers, a base station, and the software to run them.
Map Graphics Custom Mapping generously offered their support in helping the reef monitoring program with mapping.
Marine Biologist Victor Bonito (Reef Explorer Fiji Ltd.), came to Naitauba in August of 2016 and spent a week surveying and introducing himself to our reef. Victor is a leader in coral propagation and works out of the Coral Coast on Viti Levu, Fiji. Read more about his visit here.
