Description

WCS continues to work with the Tanzania government, conservation partners and communities to strengthen fisheries management and marine protected areas across mainland and Zanzibari waters. WCS’s Trans-Boundary Conservation Area (TBCA) initiative aims to improve fisheries management and marine conservation at local, national and international levels. Underpinned by decades of WCS coral reef research and monitoring along East Africa’s coast, the project area – which extends from Pangani up to Diani in southern Kenya, was chosen due to its climate resilient reefs, the level of threat to its marine biodiversity and the potential for sustainable fisheries management.
