Meet Josefa Bau from Nataleira who runs a dolphin watching business with tours to Moon Reef, a Marine Protected Area (MPA) in Fiji. Nurturing and protecting natural resources is not a new or foreign concept for i-Taukei (indigenous Fijians) like Josefa - ocean conservation is more than just environmental protection - it is an intrinsic part of their identity passed on for generations. The World Bank supports Fiji's mission to protect its ocean resources and has assisted with the finalization of Fiji's new National Ocean Policy that includes expanding its MPA and achieving an increase of up to thirty percent of its marine areas by 2030.
