Conservation officers (and turtles) go online!

The Arnavon Islands Marine Protected Area is pleased to announce the installation of broadband Internet communications at their field offices on Kerehikapa Island.

The Arnavon Islands are home to the breeding ground of endangered Hawksbill Turtles and other species.

The stakeholders of the MPA intend to use the facility to promote awareness and educational activities in collaboration with schools and the communities of Kia, Wagina and Katupika.

On Saturday 5th February, 2011, conservation officers and community representatives met to inspect the facilities and undergo some initial training.

This is an opportunity for the communities to experience modern technology and to take ownership of our online resources – Isaac Matezama, Kia Village
