ADE has been working on rebuilding Fiji’s reefs since 2014. So far, three sites have implemented the ADE process and are witnessing tremendous regrowth on their reefs! The villages have been reporting that many species of fish have now moved back in and are occupying these areas once again. The ADE site in Druadrua, for example, has had an amazing amount of regrowth and is currently being used as a platform for further scientific research.
Although Fiji is witnessing unprecedented results at the ADE sites, there is still more work to be done. In order to have the necessary impact in rebuilding Fiji’s reefs, more sites are needed. Our goal is to scale the project to a total of 45 sites within Fiji by the year 2020. Only then will we truly be able to make an impact to counter the destruction of these reefs and collect the necessary data for the future. With time, dedication, and your support, we CAN and WILL make a difference in Fiji’s coral reefs for GENERATIONS to come!
