An ambassador of conservation. A veteran to field work, I've visited dozens of villages during my four years with the Wildlife Conservation Society. I’ve been fortunate to accompany scientists, explaining in Fijian the relevance and importance of conservation for the villages’ welfare.


I joined the WCS team after a chance meeting with Dr. David Olson, then WCS director and fellow canoe club enthusiast, I completed an epic three-week canoe trip my home island of Lakeba to the town of Savusavu. I represent Fiji in the 1995 and 2003 South Pacific Games.

My field experience includes bird surveys, mammal trapping, wetland work, and a wide range of arthropod collections. In addition to being a litter sifter, I work with the Malaise trap and aerial net. I have had a new species of Dolichopodid fly, Plagiozopelma tokotaai, named in my honor. I am committed to conservation work for the current and future generations of the Fijian people.
