The Great Fiji Butterflyfish Count: November 2 -8, 2008
Help celebrate and record Fiji’s amazing coral reef biodiversity, have fun and show you care about our world’s delicate coral reef systems; take part in a week-long hunt for the Great Fiji Butterflyfish!
2008 is the International Year of the Reef (IYOR), and the whole world is going coral reef crazy! Countries across the globe are holding special activities and programmes to raise awareness and help conserve the corals and the animals that live on them.
This event is supported by the Fiji Government Departments of Tourism, Environment and Fisheries, the Fiji Visitors’ Bureau, and several reef conservation organisations. Special tourism promotions will be available during the week of November 2-8.
