The Environment
Caring for the environment is a focus of many Rotary projects.  This is nothing new and projects are varied from growing and planting trees to helping educate students on environmental issues such through the Trees for Survival programme to beach cleanups and much more.  This page will describe some of the more established projects and the stories below will give examples of clubs active in the community.
Clubs are encouraged to send information about their projects to and if you are wanting to connect with Rotary about its environmental projects please contact your local club.

Fiji with its forests, mountains and coral reefs, spread across 300 islands, contain a wealth of biodiversity.   It is also on the front line of climate change that brings increasingly unpredictable weather and over time slowly rising sea levels, both of which will degrade coast lines, place natural resources and threaten communities.
Mangrove forests stabilize the coastline, reducing erosion from storm surges, currents, waves, and tides.  They also improve the health of inshore fisheries through providing a safe environment for fish and other organisms to thrive.  Unfortunately, mangrove forests and also shoreline vegetation have suffered over decades through removal and pollution.
On Saturday 29 July 2017 Suva Rotarians, including District Governor Malini and Assistant Governor Griffon, Rotaractors, Year 12 students from the Yat Sen school and corporate and conservation staffs joined together to plant over 340 trees and to clear away rubbish along the shore of Suva Park which is part of the Fiji National Park network.
