Here’s a short clip of a beautiful and pristine coral reef in Fiji. The underwater clip was filmed several months ago in the southern region of Viti Levu in an area called Beqa Lagoon.
Viti Levu is the largest island in Fiji. The coral reef hosts a lot of hard and soft coral and an abundant amount of colorful tiny fish.
Beqa Lagoon is recognized as one of the Fiji Islands Marine Eco-regions and was considered as a national Priority Conservation Area in 2003. More recently, in 2018, Beqa Lagoon was afforded the highest level of recognition by Fiji’s Protected Area Committee as a ‘Biophysically Special and Unique Marine Area in Fiji’.
