REEF RESTORATION UPDATE
Reef Restoration Update: 67 reefballs constructed
Reef restoration update: we now have 67 reefballs ready for deployment at Boma Subutuni, Tanzania – an area previously heavily plagued by blast-fishing!
Mwambao are engaging with Boma Subutuni village to build the capacity of the community’s BMU* and implement a coastal resource management plan. Community agreement on deployment location and subsequent management is key to success. We plan that the reefballs will be incorporated into a permanent or temporary closure as part of Boma’s management plan, offering an opportunity for the restoration of coral reefs destroyed by dynamite fishing.
*Beach Management Units (BMUs) on mainland Tanzania are the village bodies responsible for management decisions surrounding marine resources.
