Preliminary findings of the first biological survey of the highlands of Solomon Islands has been revealed.
Scientists from United States of America (USA), Australia, New Zealand, Czech Republic, Fiji, Vanuatu and other locals have carried out flora and fauna surveys at Chupukama land, Guadalcanal two week ago.
Chief Executive Officer of the Solomon Islands Community Conservation Partnership Ms. Senoveva Mauli says data from such survey findings would be needed in conservation initiatives.
“In any conservation initiative whereby we will bring in funders, for instance, and also other donors who funded other initiatives we are working on, you need data which is supported by science, which is done in a scientific method.”
She says the findings of this biological survey would help Solomon Islands in its conservation agenda.
The Solomon Islands Community Conservation Partnership (SICCP) hosted this morning’s event with Deputy Prime Minister Hon. Douglas Ete as Chief Guest.
