Human activities including unsustainable and harmful fishing practices, mangrove harvesting and destruction of nesting and foraging habitats is seriously threatening the marine ecology of the Lamu district.

Through a holistic approach we are establishing a representative network to promote and implement solutions to protect the marine ecosystem and use marine resources sustainably, whilst working to conserve valuable coral reefs, sea grass and extensive mangrove forests which provide refuge for many aquatic species and migratory seabirds.
