NatureFiji Director Nunia Thomas-Moko yesterday challenged delegates of the 47th Fiji Institute of Accountants to play their part in climate change mitigation.

Ms Thomas-Moko was among the four speakers featured during at the first-day of the Congress at the Shangri-La’s Fijian Resort and Spa, Yanuca Island.

In her extensive experience, other than leading Fiji’s only local membership based organisation working solely for the conservation and sustainable use of Fiji’s biodiversity, Ms Thomas-Moko has led a number of projects as a Herpetologist for Wildlife Conservation Society, University of the South Pacific (USP), Department of Environment and Secretariat of the Pacific Community. She commended Government’s role in the fight against climate change.Adding a solution to addressing this commonly known issue, is by allowing the younger generation to reconnect with nature.

“Nature is playing her part- are we?” Ms Thomas-Moko said.

“It is time to take these solutions up and make a personal choice to do what is right for the planet and for the species and systems that support us.

“The Government is signatory to many international commitments towards mitigating climate change.

“We have so many mechanism in place to allow Fiji to meet its commitments but we need more than just Government commitments.

“I believe that if we took time to sit and rediscover Fiji, the Fiji we know and love, our behaviour will change so that we make decisions that are positive for nature.

“It is time for you to go and write your story on how you can contribute to make this world a safe haven for nature and people.”
