Do A Sustainable Stay: Planting Mangroves At Nanuku
Leave our tropical home more lush than when you arrived by joining us in planting mangrove propagules at Nanuku’s onsite nursery. As a part of our Planet Auberge Program, an initiative to decrease each property’s footprint, this eco-conscious activity delights adults, families, and our youngest “tribe members” in the LaiLai Kids Club as they join us in our effort to preserve Fiji’s paradise. By getting hands-on in the soil with our community, guests improve the surrounding environment we all so deeply cherish while simultaneously testing out their green-thumb and soaking up Fiji’s majestic, natural splendor.
At our Mangrove Nursery, our resident marine bioligist teaches the vital role mangroves play as a breeding ground for marine life, protection from land erosion, and in oxygen production. With sustainability at the forefront of this initiative, the mangroves are planted in collected recycled plastic bottles for four to six weeks before they are then transferred to designated beach erosion zones of nearby villages. Having already planted well over 5000 Mangroves over the last two years, we are hopeful to join hands with our Fijian community and visiting guests to reach our goal of 15,000 mangroves by end of this year.
