Fiafia Rex is the founder and President of one of Niue’s longest-standing volunteer educational and research organizations, Oma Tafua (meaning “to treasure whales”). Her NGO is dedicated to the protection of marine mammals in Niue and the Pacific. She is a graduate of the University of the South Pacific, and she wears several hats including jobs in hospitality and as a reporter. When not working with Oma, Fiafia can be found volunteering with the University of Life on village projects to develop and manage marine and terrestrial conservation areas. As an oceanholic, Fiafia not only aspires to be wild, beautiful, and free just like the sea but is also driven by it to find or be a voice for those without.
