Clean up the World day rocked around Rarotonga!!!!!!
This annual Clean up day was concentrating on the land site of Rarotonga to prevent the rubbish going into the sea. Together with the Environmental Service, The Red Cross and Origin Cook Islands we organized this big event. Goal was to clean the whole island. So many schools, private groups and buisiness came together to participate in this event.
It was great to see so many people involved. Also it is good to see that all this initiatives work, because (for example) we cleaned all the way up to wigmores waterfall and surprisingly it looked good. of course we collected a fair amount of rubbish but nothing compare to the years before.
Thanks to all who helped us make this day a great success.
Lagoon day raises awareness in Rarotonga
This Year the Lagoon day was a great success. Hundreds of children learned about the role wetlands play in protecting our lagoon and marine life.
We had the pleasure to sponsor some prices for class competition - this year we have for the winners a lagoon dive as price.
The Lagoon day is getting bigger and bigger every year which is great because it really raises the awareness of the protection of the lagoon.
