Under the Wave
Matemwe, Zanzibar, Tanzania
Protection of marine life, Sustainable fishing
Under The Wave is located at Matemwe, in the North-East of Zanzibar. The NGO was created by Scubafish Zanzibar dive center owners and two marine biologists, Laura & Ludovic, with the aim to protect the marine life in the region. North of Matemwe is the Mnemba atoll which presents one of the most beautiful coral reefs of Zanzibar and has a high diversity of marine life, including sea turtles, bottlenose dolphins & hundreds of fish species. The increasing activities of tourism and local fisheries around Mnemba atoll are putting more pressure on the reef. Under the Wave works to protect the reef and to help local communities to develop more sustainable fishing practices.
