A NEWLY established Eco-Lodge at Babasu on east central Guadalcanal has recognised the value of conserving its marine species.
Dalavanua Eco-lodge at Babasu village, its owner Ben Livu said conservation is vital and sustainable for long term benefit.
He said his village has managed to secure around 2km along the Island as a Maine Protected Area.
He said this has enabled his village and visitors to have abundance of marine resources, which can only be harvested at a certain period.
On the other hand he said this is another major fascination surf spots around the Islands that may possibly attract visitors’ attention.
He said they have great surf spots along the Island which carry waves from up to 5 meters during the months of June and July.
Mr Livu said that this part of the world is yet to be discovered by surfers and so it is a high time for them to come out and tell the world what natural beauties they have.
