Long Distance Paddlers to Investigate Health of FIji River System

Ever hear of the island paradise of Fiji? Ever imagine visiting there? How about paddling down the Island's rivers?

Are you the kind of paddler able to span vast distances for the purpose of checking the health of a river system? This absolutely fascinating story coming from the Fiji Times Online (yeah, as in Paradise) tells the story of more than 70 people on kayaks, canoes, and we have to assume dugouts for a long distance trip down one of the Island nation's most beautiful - and endangered - waterways. The results will be of great value, because much of the trip has never been done before, and the information they collect sure to be beautiful and meaningful.

From the Fiji Times Online:

SEVENTY paddlers in almost every manner of non-motorised water craft will be a site to behold this Saturday when they take part in the first-ever Rewa River to Ocean Paddle.

Laucala Bay Fiji

Organised by the Uto ni Yalo Trust, Fiji Outrigger Association and the Fiji Yachting Association, the event is one of three in a series of marathon paddling events aimed at bringing attention to ocean conservation and cleanliness.

The whole story can be found here.
