Gander Wainiqolo

This internship will provide technical mapping and analytical support to the WCS Fiji Program, with the goal of establishing resilient marine protected area networks across the four currently unmanaged districts in Bua Province. WCS Fiji are currently collecting survey data on reef resilience from these districts, and this internship will find innovative ways to apply these field data to the purpose of identifying resilient and representative networks of marine protected areas.
