Nature Tourism as a means of protecting Indigenous Forests Resources in Fiji (Abstract)

By: Sean Weaver

It is well recognised that there is an urgent need in Fiji for conserving what remains of its rapidly diminishing areas of unique indigenous rainforests (Tavaiqia 1998; Yabaki 1998; Chape and Watling 1991). At present Fiji supports a meager total of some 6,000 hectares of legally protected natural areas form a land surface of over 18,300 km2 (Chape and Watling 1991).
