TAMARI’I POINTE DES PÊCHEURS is a 1901 type association created in 2008. Initially founded for a trochus fishing campaign by a family of fishermen, it naturally focused on the protection of the coral reefs of the Pointe des Pêcheurs, in Puna’auia (Tahiti, French Polynesia).
Since 2014, Tamari’i Pointe des Pêcheurs has been working in a sustainable way to:
– Coral restoration in the lagoon of Pointe des Pêcheurs;
– Raising awareness among the general public through various workshops (Rahui, Coral, Waste sorting, Observation of marine mammals, etc.).
Thanks to these actions, the association has cut and monitored nearly 2,462 coral fragments which have made it possible to restore degraded parts of the Punaauia lagoon but also raised awareness among thousands of people through 190 eco-citizen days organized for schoolchildren, businesses and individuals. The association wishes to use its experience in coral restoration techniques but also to raise awareness in the TO’A NU’UROA project.
