Last year Oceans Without Borders initiated a Coral Reef Restoration project, in response to the immense degradation observed on the Mnemba House Reef – one of Zanzibars’ most precious – and visited – coral reef systems. The CORAL FOR THE CLIMATE! CORAL REEF ECOSYSTEM EXPANSION, ZANZIBAR project has been shortlisted by the European Outdoor Conservation Association to receive 30,000 EUROS in grant funding. Funding will enable more new coral to be grown within their established coral reef nursery. The establishment of a community-owned artificial reef site to reduce pressure on the current reef system and increase biodiversity in the northern Zanzibar region, as well as coral focused educational resources to be developed and workshops to be held with local fishers, boatmen and community children.
