Rivers Fiji

Carving through steep canyons and lush rainforest, the Navua River in Fiji is both an incredible place to go rafting and an attractive prospect for logging companies. Since 2000, Rivers Fiji has collaborated with indigenous landowners and the logging company that owns the land to create the Upper Navua Conservation Area, a 16km long river corridor that hopefully will save the forest. Today 4,500 guests per year provide US$3 each towards the local communities, who so far have earned more than US$1,000,000. This may well be the only conservation area in the world funded entirely by white-water rafting trips.
