Visitors to Treasure Island can not only relax and enjoy a spectacularly beautiful environment, but they can also play an important role in helping protect and nurture the island’s unique plant and animal life.
Treasure Island is the only resort in Fiji’s Mamanuca Islands to employ a dedicated environmental officer, and part of his job is to give our visitors the chance to better understand the surrounding reef, rich marine life, and extraordinary flora and fauna.
Guests of all ages can get involved in a wide variety of fun and educational eco-tourism activities, include Treasure Island’s:
You can help feed endangered turtles on a natural diet of sponges and seaweed as they build up strength before being tagged and released back into the ocean. During the breeding season guests can also help monitor nests, with turtles often hatching right in front of the bures.
Treasure Island is a protected marine reserve and some of the species now being reintroduced include giant clams, triton snails and coral gardens. You can swim among more than 20 species of reef fish including the colourful parrot-fish, angel-fish and coral trout.
Take part in escorted snorkelling tours to “coral tables” where you can “plant” new coral that will gradually grow and breed.
A popular Kids’ Club activity is to feed Hibiscus flowers to the rare Crested Iguanas, which change colour when aroused. There only are thought to be only around 6,000 of the iguanas in the world and we are lucky to have them nesting and breeding on Treasure Island.
Introduced 10 years ago, the endangered flightless Banded Rail will duck in and out of the bushes outside your bure. Although normally very shy the birds have become very cheeky and it’s not uncommon for them to hop right into your bure or take a splash in your foot-bath outside.
