AUGUST 19, 2014

RARE WILDLIFE EXPERIENCE FOR FIJI’S KULA PARK RANGERS

Outrigger on the Lagoon kids get behind the scenes as a ranger for a day at Kula Eco Park, the environmental showcase of the South Pacific and Fiji’s only wildlife park.

Outrigger on the Lagoon . Fiji encourages guests aged 7 to 12 years to be Kula Park Rangers for a rare, hands-on experience with the island wildlife.

Cost is FJ$120 (approx NZD$76) which includes two way transport, lunch and drinks, a Kula Park Ranger Uniform shirt, digital photographs and 20 per cent government taxes.

Rangers help out in the Diet Centre where they make special food for the soft coral and tropical fish display and prepare diets and hand feed bird species such as the Kula Collared Lories. They also help give health checks to some of Fiji's rarest iguanas and hand-feed baby animals such as lambs, goats (kids), peacock and quail chicks.

Kula Eco Park Rangers leave their mark in Fiji by planting a tree whose fruit is part of the diet of the many wild coloured Fruit Doves that visit the park.

All Ranger activities are supervised by senior staff members at all times.

A self guided tour of the park is also available for FJ$30 for adults (approx NZD$19) and FJ$15 for children up to 11 years with a family pass for two adults and two children FJ$80 (approx NZD$51).
