Kadavu by Roger

Kadavu by Roger

"The island of Kadavu (Pronounced 'Kan-daw-vu' with accent on the second syllable) is something of a throwback to 'old Fiji'.

1. The mongoose was introduced by the British and has apparently eaten many of the birds on the other islands. Not on Kadavu.

2. The Cane Toad was introduced by the British and has multiplied out of control to the point of being a nuisance. Not on Kadavu.

3. During colonial times, the British found that the natives were not all that ambitious, so they imported workers from India. But not to Kadavu.

4. The Crown of Thorns starfish is killing some of the coral around Fiji. Kadavu is relatively unaffected. I didn't see any."
