Heart for marine life

With a heart for marine life and the protection of their environment, Miss BSP 2010 Rachel Sapery James is encouraging coastal communities to love and protect natural barriers such as coral reefs and mangrove forests, The National reports.

 To get her point home, she was caught scuba diving off the coast of Kimbe in West New Britain last weekend after doing some humanitarian work in the township. James is an advocate for marine conservation activities and as part of her task in the Miss PNG Red Cross Quest, she will be visiting her home province, New Ireland, to conduct awareness on climate change and issues affecting the environment.

 At BSP, she is employed as social and environmental management systems officer.

James has a masters in science and a degree in international studies of aquatic tropical ecology and conservation, obtained from the Bremen University in Germany.
