National Trust of Fiji Islands

The National Trust of Fiji (NTF), is a statutory body funded jointly by the Fiji Government, independent donors and multi-lateral projects, it was established in 1970 to provide for the protection of Fiji’s natural, cultural and national heritage. It is the only National Trust of the South Pacific region and specializes in both the natural and cultural aspects of heritage conservation.

PII has worked with NTF since 2007 on various invasive species projects such as eradication of goats and rodents, invasive plant management and biosecurity. PII has also provided and continues to provide technical advice, support and mentoring to the NTF team. In 2011 a Memorandum of Understanding was signed between PII and NTF to further strenghten our collaboration on invasive species work.
