Airline executive David “Dave” Pflieger serves as the President and CEO of Ravn Air Group, a transportation and logistics company based in Alaska which is also the State's largest regional carrier.
When David Pflieger, led Air Pacific/Fiji Airways, he also supported nonprofit organizations in Fiji such as the Mamanuca Environment Society (MES). Dedicated to protecting the land and marine resources of the Mamanuca region, MES draws upon partnerships with local communities, government agencies, and international nongovernmental organizations. The nonprofit sponsors projects that range from conserving turtles to teaching children in Fiji about the importance of protecting the environment.
MES engages in education and awareness campaigns designed to discourage children from disposing of their water bottles, plastic wrappers, and other trash in rivers that are eventually carried out to sea and can damage coral reefs. The organization also conducts clean-up campaigns that aim to eliminate trash on the beach. For instance, MES organized a program in the village of Solevu involving nearly 30 children, who picked up rubbish at a local beach.
Moreover, the organization concentrates on removing harmful crown-of-thorns starfish that feed on coral reefs. The explosion of starfish has had a devastating effect on the reefs. To learn more, visit the official MES website at www.mesfiji.org
