Yadua is a small remote island that has a population of approximately 160 people, with only one village called Denimanu on the North of the island. Yaduataba is totally uninhabited by man and this reflects the quality of the surrounding coral reefs. It is impossible to describe in words the beauty of this island, let alone what diving is like here. 
Conducting coral and fish ID surveys on these reefs for the non-profit organisation is the only way you can get to visit Yadua and dive there.

North east of Yadua Taba island (famous iguana sanctuary) on a secluded beach locally known as Talice, a nesting hawksbill turtle was located.

As we approached the turtle crawl tracks on the beach and heard loud “swooshes” – the sound of sand being scattered as the hawksbill turtle began to dig its nest. The sound of storm waves crashing on the beach, as if to applaud and cheer on the turtle and the far away lighting on the horizon as darkness began to swallow the earth was the most majestic greeting to this ancient sea reptile as it crawled up on to land to nest after decades of navigating the seas.
This (nesting) is the only time that turtles are found on land. It is highly possible that the 88.8cm hawksbill turtle is a hatchling of Yadua returning after more than 25 years to the beach of her birth to transfer her genetic code into the future. The hawksbill was named ‘Marama ni Yadua’ by the villagers who expressed great emotion at seeing the turtle lay it’s eggs and with the attachment of the satellite tag, commented that it would be an unforgettable experience for them and the community of Yadua. A small church service was also conducted before the turtle was released into the sea with the hope to see it return to Yadua in the years to come.
Fiji’s first satellite tagged turtle: The excitement generated out of locating the nesting turtle on Yadua Taba stems out of the fact that this is Fiji’s first ever satellite tagged turtle. It has become increasingly difficult to find nesting turtles in Fiji, hence the team reacted promptly and set off to Yadua with the satellite.
Turtles are known to nest (lay eggs) from November through to March. Thus, over the holiday period, several other teams were conducting nesting beach work around Fiji including the Mamanuca group, Koro Island and Yadua Taba.
