ABOUT THE CHARITY

This organization is a non-profit marine conservation working to achieve a more sustainable future and raise awareness of the plight of their marine life. They are conducting the first ever research in Guinjata Bay, Mozambique and have initiated the first education projects in the area involving two local schools. This NGO ultimately hopes to establish a marine protected area for Guinjata and the surrounding bays, through a multipronged, bottom-up approach, protecting the diverse marine life there and encouraging ecotourism expansion. 

PROJECT DETAILS

The project would consist of rotating the volunteer around the organization’s principle activities. This would include some time spent at the local school documenting both teaching and the renovations, as well as some time documenting the research – all aspects: shark and ray fisheries, coral reef surveys, humpback research and whale shark research. These photographs will help demonstrate the plight of the marine animals and the need for humans to take more care in the environment and exercise sustainable fishing.
