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 :
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.
What we do
We create, share and support co-managed initiatives by working with communities, stakeholders and partners.
We develop, support and implement projects to create impact including coral restoration, climate smart kitchen gardens, and community capacity building.
We scale our model through education programs for :
- school children
- students and interns
- international students
- coastal communities
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.
