Who we are

Our team has decades of experience in community-based management of marine resources in East Africa. We work closely with coastal communities to :

  • safeguard biodiversity

  • ensure the sustainability of marine ecosystems

  • protect fisheries and coral reefs 

  • secure and improve livelihoods

  • protect the rights of small scale fishermen and their families 

 

We do this by working with stakeholders to create and implement Collaborative Managed Areas.

KING'S VISIT

We were delighted to welcome King Charles III to Kuruwitu on 3rd November to tour some of our projects. His Majesty walked through our demonstration garden and then launched a coral restoration block bearing his cypher. The King expressed his belief in the importance of marine protected areas and community-led conservation.
