Fish-catch surveys are key to developing sustainable small-scale fisheries, conserving precious marine resources, and protecting food security for local communities. The collaborative monitoring of fish catches within Mozambique’s Bazaruto Archipelago National Park is a primary responsibility of the OWB team of Community & Conservation marine rangers on Benguerra Island. As members of the local community, the rangers actively share knowledge on best fishing practices with local fishers, and play a crucial role as conservation ambassadors. Find out how you can support them in this year’s Wildlife Ranger Challenge here.
