On Thursday the 26th June, the Cook Islands Pearl Authority held their annual market day at the Pununga Nui, giving local Black Pearl vendors a chance to showcase their beautiful jewelry. Jacqui Evans and Kevin Iro from the Cook Islands Marine Park Steering Committee also had a stall to promote the Marae Moana. All the Pearl vendors and farmers think it's absolutely vital to protect our ocean and lagoons and they showed their full support for the Marae Moana.
