The Ra Province launched a Vatu-i-Ra conservation management Plan in an effort to protect its Conservation Park.
The province of Ra is the first to have an Integrated Management Plan to help conserve the park and its contents.
I-Taukei Affairs Permanent Secretary, Naipote Katonitabua says the creation of the Park together with its Integrated Management Plan has come from the partnership formed between the Vanua Nakorotubu and the local tourism operators within the province.
With the support of the Ra Provincial Office, the Wildlife Conservation Society, local communities and the tourism operators, the Park was established.
The Vatu-i-Ra Conservation Park includes Vatu Island and the surrounding marine areas.
