owb-restoring the balance-2

“Restoring the balance” is the focus of Oceans Without Borders five-year marine conservation strategy across the Mnemba Island seascape, in collaboration with andBeyond, local stakeholders, and Zanzibar’s Ministry of Blue Economy & Fisheries. January 2024 finds their island team ramping up the coral nursery to accelerate Mnemba House Reef’s restoration, and develop more artificial sites that will not only support local reef rehabilitation, but also stimulate revenue for island communities. The team will be conducting reef health and biodiversity monitoring at key sites, using the additional resource of “BRUVS” (Baited Remote Underwater Video Systems) on reefs deeper than 50 m.
