Marine conservation awareness and education
KEA is dedicated to providing comprehensive environmental education to East African communities. KEA was formed in response to the continued devastation of the marine/coastal regions of East Africa resulting from pollution, destructive fishing practices, and over-exploitation of natural resources exacerbated by a virtual lack of environmental awareness. These combined threats have resulted in a severe decline in many marine species and an unprecedented degradation of critically important habitats, such as mangroves and coral reefs. The destruction of entire ecosystems has, in turn, undermined the well being of the local people.
