The Department of Forest is calling on resource owners to work with government to conserve our forest for future generations.
Conservator of Forest Savenaca Lagataki says not knowing the value of natural resources can result in huge losses.
“One of the main challenges that we are currently facing right now is to have more awareness with the resource owners, this does not mean that resource owners are not aware but i think awareness is an ongoing activity and we must keep on doing it.”
The Department of Forest is currently working with iTaukei resource owners to conserve forests and to come up with sustainable uses of the resources.
