The Seas4Life Trust is currently focused on the Msambweni seascape—a beautiful pocket of seagrass beds, patch reefs, mangroves, and deltas. The marine life you’ll find here includes sea turtles, whale sharks, at-risk dugongs, and migrating humpback whales.
Great potential exists for a healthy Msambweni ecosystem to offer the local community broad social and economic benefits which, in turn, could lead to sustainable development, growth, and productivity. To help reach this goal, Seas4Life Trust makes available research, education, skills development, and a little adventure to all locals, regardless of age or profession, to help them appreciate the precious marine ecosystem nearby. This inclusive approach places responsibility into the hands of the local community and engenders a sense of empowerment as they take on the mantle of custodians of their own ocean resources.
Alongside local ‘Green Teams’ and beach clean-ups led by school children, these community-focused Seas4Life projects are leading by example.
