We believe that we have a sustainable and transferable model for MPA financing and management that could provide a basis for developing a network of MPAs along the coast. We are currently working with the fishermen’s committees on a resource mapping exercise to establish where the best opportunities exist for extending the network of reserves.
We estimate that the Kwanini MPA represents about 2% of the coral reef resource along the west coast of Pemba and so we have a long way to go to achieve the 30%-40% considered necessary to achieve the management goals. Our aim is to bring 20% of the coast under effective management. Please help us to conserve one of the most important coral reef areas in the Western Indian Ocean and give generously to our conservation efforts.
Here’s how you can support:
Sponsor an MPA or a reef
Donate towards our resource mapping and fishermen’s consultation and support programme
