Once again it is time for all of the divers and snorkellers that visit the beautiful waters of Fiji to take part in The Great Fiji Shark Count, and Dive Wananavu is no different.  Every time we hit the water throughout the month of April we will be makring down all of the shark, turtle and ray species we see (or don't, it all goes to help the scientists!).

All of the information that we collect will help towards trying to get a better idea of Fiji's shark populations so that they can be better protected.
