Isabella Aini, a student at Latter-day Saints (LDS) Primary School in Suva, understands the importance of oceans and her role in their preservation.

Alongside her classmates and teachers, Isabella actively participated in the World Oceans Day celebration at Albert Park in Suva.

Engaging with educational displays on ocean conservation and marine life, she gained valuable knowledge about these vital ecosystems.

Yesterday, Isabella had the opportunity to observe turtles and engage in dialogues that further enriched her understanding of the ocean’s significance.

“It is important to protect our ocean because our ocean provides us with many things,” Isabella said.

“A lot of people depend on the ocean for food and other needs.”

She said it was important to protect and look after the ocean and she called on the young people of Fiji to lead the charge in its preservation.

“Littering, overfishing, and hurting our marine species are harming our oceans,” Isabella, 12, said.

“One of the things I do to protect the oceans is picking up trash in my surroundings, which can go from one place to the oceans.”
