Meet the Bula Buddies, and enjoy 32 fully illustrated pages of adventure!

Viti Village in Fiji is one of many underwater communities that stretch across the South Pacific, with the members of their community referred to as "Vanua".  The Vanua are very long-lived, with some members who have special abilities allowing the community to live safely in a sometimes dangerously changing environment.

This book series tells the story of the Bula Buddies on a mission to find a new home on the reef. The story is structured to bring awareness about issues in our marine environment in a humorous way to keep the reader entertained. Written by one of the original pioneer of coral reef restoration in Fiji.
