Matantas Aquaponics Trial

Two Llamas sought to investigate the issues that may arise if aquaponics was introduced to remote Ni-Vanuatu villages such as Matantas. Although many villages in Vanuatu have rich volcanic soils, there are many that have sandy, salt-soaked soils and limited access to water.

Matantas Social Enterprise

The remote coastal village of Matantas is located in the far north of Espiritu Santo, Vanuatu. Home to approximately 250 people, there are no jobs in-country except for the processing of copra. Two Llamas wanted to help the community to develop a small-scale sustainable business that would allow the community to utilise existing natural resources to create a unique product for the Luganville and Port Olry markets.
