Shangri-La’s Fijian Resort and Spa, Yanuca Island, has put its weight behind the move to have the Sigatoka Sand Dunes National Park declared a World Heritage Site.

The Sigatoka Sand Dunes was declared a National Park in 1987 and has been shortlisted for World Heritage Site listing by the United Nations Educational Scientific & Cultural Organisation (UNESCO).

The resort has taken an initiative of partnership with the National Trust of Fiji to develop and upgrade the infrastructure.

Resort general manager Craig Powell said in order to finalise the National Park they must fulfil certain criteria in terms of infrastructure at the site.

“This is where the charity benefit and live auction, Sands of Time, scheduled for Saturday August 29 at the resort, will raise the much-needed funds for the upgrade,” he said.

“We’ve set a target of selling 30 tables at this event, and will also run a live auction hoping to raise much more than we anticipate,” he said.

The tickets are from $150 per person or $1200 for a table of 10 with the programme beginning at 6pm to midnight at the Ratu Makutu Events Centre.
