Long-term protection of Whales & Dolphins in Fiji

Digital Projector Purchase

During the Third Phase of the Spinner Dolphin Research project, the GVI Charitable Trust funded a new digital projector to assist in both the training of volunteer researchers and the dissemination of information to local stakeholders on the status of their marine assets and the results of the ongoing research into the Spinner Dolphin pod that have inhabited the sacred Moon Reef for as long as most villagers can remember.

The Digital projector has enabled Dr Cara Miller of WDCS and the GVI research team to present information, data, and educational videos to the community in an accessible and attractive way during info and awareness evenings. The projector is also an integral tool during the initial training of volunteers and is used to show in large format the detail of dorsal id images and photo-id methodology.  

GVI and WDCS would like to thank the donors that enabled the purchase of this important asset for our programs in the Dawasamu District.
