LOCATION: Beqa Lagoon, Fiji
MISSION: Investigate the Value of Live Shark Populations
Fiji has something extraordinary – a shark marine reserve. How did this come about, what does this mean for Fiji and for the sharks in the reserve?
Riley’s headed to Beqa Lagoon in Fiji to find out. He’s going to join up with Beqa Adventure Divers to look at the impact this reserve is having. What he discovers is amazing.
Shark diving is generating more than USD42 million a year in revenue for the local economy. Also, the building numbers of Bull Sharks in the reserve have led the Beqa Lagoon to now be considered one of the top ten shark dives in the world.
