Ahura Resorts is delighted to announce the appointment of environmental specialist, Sia Rasalato, to the position of Group Environment Manager.

As a leading Fiji resort company, signing on Rasalato demonstrates Ahura’s serious ongoing commitment to sustainable and responsible eco-tourism.

“As a resort company operating in a pristine, sensitive environment such as ours, with ocean and coral reefs on one side and land flora aand fauna on the other, we fully recognise the importance of sustainable tourism and believe that development in such areas carries both a legal and moral responsibility to ensure our environment is not degraded though irresponsible activities and practices,” said Steve Anstey, Group general manager Ahura Resorts.                “Sia has extensive qualifications and experience in environmental management within Fiji, and it is a great honour to welcome him to our team.

“Our aim is to not only minimise our impact on the extraordinary nature that surrounds us but also, through a range of activities, programs and initiatives, improve and enhance the environment for imperilled species and future generations.

“The significant work we have done to date with the iguanas and now the recent appointment of Sia demonstrates this commitment,” Mr Anstey added.

The discovery of a Fiji Crested Iguana in 2010 at Likuliku Lagoon resort kicked off an incredible research journey, sparked by the species’ classification as critically endangered on the IUCN Red List.

Ahura Resort is part of the Nadi-based Rosie Holidays Group.

It operates the Likuliku Lagoon Resort and Malolo Island Resort, both on Malolo.
