Jambiani Eco Initiatives

Coastal erosion and declining fish populations in the Jambiani area have prompted cooperation between Jamabeco (Jambiani Marine & Beach Conservation) and Marine Cultures (www.marinecultures.org) to promote conservation, create an artificial reef, and explore new aquaculture projects such as sponge and sea-cucumber farms. With support and sustained education Jambiani will hopefully be able to pioneer more sustainable fishing and tourism practices, which will ultimately benefit the island as a whole.
