The Ministry of Forestry’s Colo-i-Suva Forest Park Rangers were recently commended for their hard work in looking after the birds, plants, trees and other wildlife species that thrive there.
Keeping the forests safe for visitors and wildlife is the most important part of a forest park ranger’s job.
The role these rangers played in assisting wildlife researchers and scientists from the University of the South Pacific that were gathering information which was published in the book titled Colo-i-Suva Forest Park Wildlife.
The book was launched by the Minister for Forestry Osea Naiqamu at the Fiji Museum last week and contains records of the presence of several unique plants and animals in the world which can be found at the Colo-i-Suva Forest Park.
Marika Tuiwawa, curator at the Institute of Applied Sciences from USP and one of the authors said the book would not have been possible if not for the assistance and cooperation of the Forest Rangers at Colo-i-Suva.
